Hasselblad is calling for entries to its 2009 Masters Award photo competition. The contest is open to all established professional photographers using large and medium format cameras, regardless of brand.
There are 9 categories: Fine Art, Nature/Landscape, Social/Wedding, Portrait, Fashion, Editorial, Product, Architecture, and General Photography.
There is also a special category for up and coming photographers. This category is open to all professional photographers, regardless of length of time in the business or camera format used.
But all shooting done in conjunction with the Hasselblad Masters program or its activities shall be done using entirely Hasselblad gear. To this end, winners of the 2009 Masters Awards will receive an equipment sponsorship agreement with Hasselblad wherein they will receive the use of an H3D digital camera system for the creation of images for a special Masters Commemorative book to be published.
Entries to the 2009 Hasselblad Masters Award photo contest will be accepted until January 1, 2009.
