Hasselblad today announced that it is accepting submissions for the 2014 Masters Awards competition. The title of Master is awarded to one photographer in each of 12 categories in recognition of his or her contribution to the art of photography. Judging is based on photographic ability in the areas of creativity, composition, conceptual strength and technical skill.
"We\'ve made some adjustments to the 2014 Masters Awards competition, which will allow more photographers to participate," says Paul Waterworth, Hasselblad Global Photographer Relations Manager. "Since many photographers are using both medium format and 35mm-type DSLRs, image entries may be captured with either format - as well as film," explains Waterworth, adding that DSLRs must have a minimum resolution of 16 megapixels.
The Pulitzer Prize in their 96th iteration was announced last week by the Columbia University. Massoud Hossani of Agence France-Presse was the recipient of the prize in the ‘Breaking News Photography’ section for his heart rendering picture of a young Afghani girl crying in fear after a suicide bomb attack. Craig F. Walker, the Denver Post Photographer was awarded in the ‘Feature Photography’ section for his image depicting the post-traumatic stress of an honorably discharged veteran of the Iraqi war. Each of them was awarded a cash sum of $10,000.
