Image competitions are a long-time tradition of the annual NSA conventions. Receiving an award and recognition at NSA has been considered a highly regarded achievement that adds stature to an artist's resume. This year, due to generous contributions from leaders in the burgeoning 3D industry, the NSA2012 awards committee is able to grant significant prizes for some competitions.

There are four categories of image competitions at the NSA2012 Convention:

3D Exhibit Competition: Our long-established card and other non-projected format competition.

On-Site Image Competition: Images taken in the region, during the convention.

3D Digital Image Showcase: A new, digital image competition open to all.

Stereo Theater Competition Our long-established stereo theatre competition.
