This year’s competition featured 11 categories and received a record breaking 31,500 entries. The number of participating photographers has seen an increase of 175% this year compared to the last Masters Awards which took place in 2016. Countries with the highest number of contributors include the UK, USA, Russia, India and Germany.
Selecting just 10 finalists for each category has been a very difficult task, with the standard being extremely high.
Now, it is your turn to take part in selecting the next Hasselblad Masters.
Once logged in, you can browse the 11 different categories and view each category’s 10 finalist entries. You can then vote for three entries per category rated one to three stars where three is the highest.
The final Hasselblad Masters are then selected by a jury consisting of our ambassadors, members of the press and other photographic experts in combination with the public vote.
