The Triptych Photography Festival

3SHOTS FESTIVAL, 1st edition

Call for entries open from 8th July to 30th September

The history of art shows us limitless amounts of triptych artwork that has been realized all throughout history, although commissions mostly came from the Church. The objective for these artworks always being the same: the creation of three iconic images, a vehicle for a rewatchable story, to imagine and reimagine way beyond the religious notion.

This is our festival’s mission: to search, anywhere in the world, for photographers who know how to tell a story, three intertwined stories, three iconic moments, three meaningful attributes related to an object as to an emotion; to a time or a moment; an ideal or a dream. A past, a present or  future.

Our challenge is to capture the universe in three shots.

Between 8th July and 30th September 2021 the very first edition of 3SHOTS will open its submissions for the official festival competition. As with MAX3MIN, there will be no categories. Each photographer may submit three triptychs. They will be showcased by a selection committee, the best triptychs will be presented through the online festival for three days (18-21 November) in which the audience and the jury will decide the winners.

The author of the winning triptych will get a cash prize.
