Iceland Review’s Photographer in Second Place

Iceland Review’s photographer and deputy editor Páll Stefánsson earned the second place in the prestigious Swedish camera manufacturer Hasselblad’s 2008 Masters Competition this week, which he shares with another photographer.

Last weekend Stefánsson received a diploma from Hasselblad (see image) certifying his status as a semi-finalist and “in honor of [his] outstanding creative and technical achievement in the field of photography.”

On Hasselblad’s website it says that “Picking the ten winners of the Hasselblad Master Awards 2008 has proved to be a lengthy but enjoyable challenge for Hasselblad, who received more than 1,700 entries.”

“With each entrant submitting ten images, the judges had to review over 17,000 photographs from established professional photographers using large and medium format cameras.”

“The high level of entries is further proof of the excellent reputation the Hasselblad Master Award has developed over the years for celebrating the best in both established and rising photographic talent.”
