The Hasselblad X You Photography Competition

View all 7 Photos

A special contest for all photography enthusiasts and Hasselblad fans.

Established in 1941, Hasselblad is a leading manufacturer of digital medium format cameras. Iconic photographers like Helmut Newton, Ansel Adams, and Richard Avedon have created legendary images with Hasselblad cameras. A Hasselblad has also captured the first landing on the Moon. More recently, the brand’s X Camera Systems have revolutionized digital medium format photography. To celebrate the collection, the company has launched the Hasselblad X You photo competition. Open worldwide, the contest aims to showcase the talent of photographers as well as the possibilities of the X System. The competitors will have to create their work using the X1D-50c or the X1D II camera and focus on the story behind their photos and creative process.

Opened on 17 September 2019, the call for entries closes on 6 December 2019, at midnight CET. The company will showcase previously recognized artists throughout the competition as honorable mentions. Apart from featuring winning entries on a weekly basis on official channels, Hasselblad will also award weekly prizes. Awards include an XCD Lens and accessories from partner brands.
