NSA Image Competitions

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.

There are three categories of image competitions at 3D-Con 2022:

Modern and Vintage Stereo View Competitions

Stereo views have captivated people for over 150 years. This competition features two categories - Vintage stereo view format (more than 50 years old) and Modern Stereoview format (views photographed by the entrant).

On-Site Digital Image Competition

The NSA On-Site Image Competition has been a Convention tradition for many years, and is always a popular presentation during the Sunday 3D Theater. The goal is to gather stereo photos taken by 3D-Con attendees during the course of the Convention, highlighting the people and places that make the 3D-Con great. Each registered NSA Convention attendee may enter images of their own making in the 2022 NSA 3D-Con On-Site Image Competition. We plan to have a room set aside in the 3D-Con hotel with a few computers loaded with software (StereoPhoto Maker) where you can download, align, crop and transfer your digital files.
