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 four categories of image competitions at 3D-Con 2023:

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).

SSA Stereo Card Showcase

Attention all 3D photographers:

You are invited to contribute to a non-competitive exhibition of original stereo cards at 3D-Con this year. All submitted cards will be displayed in the 3D-Con Art Gallery where convention attendees will be able to view and enjoy them.

We are excited about seeing your images and giving everyone a chance to show their work in a supportive, non-competitive environment.

Conditions of Entry:
By submitting images, individuals agree to allow NSA and our sponsors (if applicable) to reproduce submitted images in Stereo World and/or the sponsoring website.

3D Digital Image Showcase

You are invited to enter the 2023 3D Digital Image Showcase competition. All entries will be shown in the 3D Theater at the convention. Each entrant can submit up to FOUR digital images. We will be awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the best overall portfolio (photographer) AND individual images.

There is no cost/fee to enter.

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 2023 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.
