2009 Hasselblad Masters Award Winners Announced

20/01/2010 For the ninth consecutive year, ten photographers have been awarded the coveted title of Hasselblad Master.

With submissions from nearly 3,000 photographers, this year’s contest has been one of the most successful since its inception in 2001. “Given the exceptional talents of the 100 finalists, though, it was very difficult for the international Hasselblad panel to select only 10 winners”, says Christian Nørgaard, Hasselblad´s Photographer Relations Manager.

The ten winners will each have access to Hasselblad’s flagship camera system, the H4D, to contribute to the second annual commemorative Masters book featuring their individual photographic interpretations of the theme “emotion”. The Hasselblad Masters book Vol. 2 will be released at Photokina 2010, the bi-annual international photographic tradeshow in Cologne, Germany, in addition to a large exhibit of the Masters’ photographs, which will be viewed by almost two hundred thousand of Photokina attendees.
