Hasselblad Masters Awards are back, with a panel of juror choosing the best photographers of the past couple of years in eleven categories - from commercial to fine art, nature to portraits, and wedding to wildlife.
"The Hasselblad Masters Competition is a showcase for photographic excellence and provides both up and coming and established photographers the opportunity for their work to be seen like no other," says photographer and grand jury member Colin Prior.
The winners, who will be given access to an H4D, lenses and Phocus software for this year's project, now have to create a series of images based on their interpretation of the theme Evoke. The projects will then be exhibited at the Photokina trade show in Cologne in September.
The winners are Frank Meyl in the Architectural category; Jon Lowenstein in Editorial; Wai Kuen Eric Wong in Fashion/Beauty; Christian Tagliavini in Fine Art; Ken Hermann in General; Tom D. Jones in Landscapes/Nature; Denis Rouvrein Portraits; Joe Felzman in Products; Milosz Wozaczynski in Wedding/Social; and Lucas Pupo in Wildlife.
Spanish photography Vicente Ansola was crowned the Up and Coming photographer.
Following Cologne, the winning images will travel to Los Angeles and New York, as well as Berlin, Tokyo, Beijing, Mumbai, Moscow and São Paulo.
