    Just curious - do any of the recent Hasselblad masters (say of the last 3 or 4 years) shot using a film back, or have all the winners\top 12 entries being digital entries?

    I've just looked at http://www.hasselblad.com/masters-2012.aspx and was curious to know which, if any, were shot on film.

    Well that link mentions "Photography" twice so, I guess they're talking about running film through a camera. :munch:

    Anton Corbijn still uses Hasselblad and film. He said so on a talk show just a few minutes ago. Some timing:smile:

    Michael Jackson - http://www.mgjackson.co.uk/ - has been a finalist a few times.

    http://www.hasselblad.com/masters-2004/july---jian-junyu.aspx - pretty sure he does. Wish he had a website though.

    And he obviously does - http://www.hasselblad.com/masters-2012/editorial-jon-lowenstein.aspx

    Think it's safe to say the Hasselblad Masters thing is essentially a marketing strategy and the aim is to sell their latest cameras. Hence more digital work.
    Also, the fact that film is now generally the medium of the fine artist might give you some idea about the film shooter's standpoint on photography competitions.
    Most of the entries are either documentary or fashion, genres in which film is no longer the practical solution for the job.
