Hasselblad zoekt masters

Wie in wil zenden voor de Hasselblad Masters Award heeft nog de tijd om in te zenden tot 31 december. Professionele fotografen kunnen kiezen uit elf categorieën. Foto’s moeten zijn gemaakt met een midden- of grootformaat camera van elk merk.
Zoals het Engelse persbericht meldt:

The Hasselblad Masters Award is the most prestigious awards in the industry, each year celebrating the best in both established and rising photographic talent. Masters Awards are given in recognition of a photographer’s contribution to the art of photography and are judged on overall photographic ability, encompassing creativity, composition, conceptual strength, and technical skill. Past Masters include both renowned artists of international standing as well as promising newcomers in a wide range of fields and disciplines.

Just as in previous years, we are opening the 2010 contest to all established professional photographers using large and medium format cameras, regardless of brand, and from up and coming photographers in the Up and Coming category, which is open to all professional photographers, regardless of type of format or camera used. All winners will receive an equipment sponsorship agreement with Hasselblad wherein they will receive the use of an H4D digital camera system for use in the creation of images for the Masters program and for a special Masters Commemorative book to be published. This book will allow the ten winning photographers to freely interpret a theme or themes in whatever creative manner they see fit, celebrating the range and versatility of both Hasselblad cameras and Hasselblad photographers.
