The 44th National Stereoscopic Association Convention

2018 3D-Con

July 17-23, 2018 • Embassy Suites Cleveland-Rockside • Independence, OH


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 3d con 2017 awards committee is able to grant significant prizes for some competitions.

  • 3D Exhibit Competition: Our long-established modern and vintage card competition. Please note: Anaglyphs, phantograms and any other non-card images now belong in the Art Gallery. Entry Form:
