The Hasselblad Masters 2014 Competition
Photographers are invited to submit their images to be considered for the prestigious Masters Awards. Categories and qualifications for the 2014 Awards have been expanded, opening the competition to more photographers than ever before
Photos will be judged in 12 categories:
Fine Art: High-quality images that have been created by an individual to fulfil their creative vision. They could be part of a set or a project or alternatively three separate images.
Nature/Landscape: Photographs that capture the beauty of the natural world in all its forms, from stunning landscapes through to perfectly executed images of flora and fauna.
Wedding/Social: This category is open to photographers capturing outstanding images of any aspect of a wedding in styles that range from the traditional through to the more individual approach.
Portrait: A wide-open category that covers any photography of the human form, ranging from full-length studies through to head and shoulders and close-ups, with the emphasis on creativity.
Fashion/Beauty: The glitz and glamour of the fashion and beauty world is covered by this category, and we’re looking for some inventive and exciting work that truly reflects the dynamism of this sector.
Editorial: Here the theme is based around stories that have been told through the use of photography, and the style can range from classic photojournalism through to images that would be more at home in a newspaper Supplement.
Product: Here the definition of product is as far ranging as the photographer wants to make it, with subjects ranging from cars through to food or packaging being equally eligible, while the brief could be a commercial one or self set.
Architecture: With every type of building from the grand through to the humble being open to photographers, we’re looking for an imaginative interpretation of the architectural theme.
General: This is the category that gives you full rein to enter cherished images that don’t necessarily fit neatly into any of the other categories that have been listed here.
Wildlife: A wide open category that covers all forms of wildlife, from the huge through to the tiny. Our only stipulation is that images depict living creatures and any entries showing stuffed or dead animals will be automatically excluded.
Project//21: Project//21 is a general photographic category open to all amateur photographers, students, assistants and young professionals 21 years old and under.
Underwater: As the category title suggests, the theme here is Images that have been taken underwater, and the photographer could have used any camera system above 16MP plus a professional camera housing to get the shots
