Here Are The 11 Photographers That Won The Prestigious Hasselblad Masters Awards Of 2018

One of the most prestigious photography contests in the world has announced the best photos of its 2018 competition. The Hasselblad Masters Awards are held once every two years, selecting the very best photographers in 11 categories. This time, the photo contest attracted 31,500 entries (175% more than two years ago), receiving some of the most stunning pictures from across the world.

From intimate portraits to otherworldly landscapes, the contest awards give acclaimed professionals, as well as aspiring newcomers, the opportunity to leave their mark in the world of photography art. The winners will be named Hasselblad Masters, become the ambassadors of the famous Swedish name for two years. They will also receive invitations to participate in its projects, medium format Hasselblad cameras, and their work will be printed in the Hasselblad Masters book.

“It really struck me how progressive many of the entries were this year and how far the entrants were willing to push the brief,” jury member and professional photographer Tom Oldham said. “These were the photographers who caught my eye – the ballsy, out-there risk-takers who make compelling pictures that refuse to be ignored. I’m proud to have helped to get this great kit into their hands – their creative photography skills deserve it.”
