Well the time has come and the jury has spoken. Over 10,000 photos from 4,000 photographers from all over the world were submitted for the Hasselblad Masters Award 2016 including three of my own. The public voting has now begun to choose the final 10 winners. Oh, did I mention I’m one of the finalists? It would mean the world to me for you to vote for my flagship (or what I like to think) photograph of Whisky Bay. I have entered into the Project//21 category and my image is the colourful seascape. All you have to do is vote my image with 3 STARS, another 2 STARS and finally a 1 STAR. Then click CAST VOTE. You will need to be a member with Hasselblad but that’s easy, just sign up.
I would also like you all to share my blog post and let all your friends know. Photography is my passion and to be a finalist will forever be something I’m proud of.
So how do I vote?
Visit the Hasselblad website and in the top right corner click Sign In. You'll see a Create Account link, you'll click this to create your Hasselblad account. The only information you need to provide is an email address, password and your name. Once you have done that scroll to the bottom of the page, accept the terms and conditions and click the Create Account button.
You should now be signed in but click the Sign In button in the top right again just to make sure. When signed in you'll see the Hasselblad Masters Awards finalist categories on your profile page. I entered in the Project//21 section–the section with the Mini Cooper as the image. Click into that and you'll see 10 photos. My image is the second image featuring a rather colourful seascape. Rate this image three stars then proceed to rate two others with two and one stars. Then above the gallery you'll see a white Cast Vote button, click that and it'll turn grey. You have now voted and can no longer vote again in that category.
