Nominations are open to women at all stages of their creative journey—from those starting out to seasoned professionals. What’s more, prior use of Hasselblad cameras is not required.

Once selected, the 2023 Hasselblad Heroines will develop a project to create new images for a global audience on the Hasselblad platform. Each will receive support from Hasselblad, including a camera and lenses as a loan to start their visual project.

The winners will also collaborate with Hasselblad to create a body of work that encapsulates their journey as a photographer and highlights their unique visual aesthetic. Throughout the year, the official Hasselblad website and social accounts will showcase the works and stories of these heroines.

Finally, Hasselblad will accept nominations for this year’s Hasselblad Heroines through mid-April. The company will reveal the selected photographers in June. To submit a nomination and see past Hasselblad Heroines, visit the Hasselblad Heroines page on Hasselblad’s website.
