3D on Social Media SIG

National Stereoscopic Association Convention for 3D Photography


How best to share and experience 3D online is an issue crucial to the survival of 3D, and at its forefront today is how to do so on social media. For this SIG, Gordon Au moderates Q & A and discussions featuring a panel with experience not only in social media, but also in PR, group organizing, web design, platform creation, and more. We will discuss pros and cons of different platforms, best practices, newcomer advice, how to build followings, and more, in a talk that should be of interest and use for everyone from social media newbie to 3D club organizer!

Presented by Gordon Au

3D-Con (https://3d-con.com/) is the annual convention of the National Stereoscopic Association (NSA). It is for photographers and collectors of stereo (3D) images and anyone interested in 3D imaging including 3D movies and Virtual Reality. It will be held August 12-15, 2021

PLEASE NOTE that we are limited to posting 3 main events per day, but we have many more as seen in the “all” tab, and in the “3D (Stereoscopic) Photography” channel

The convention has programming for the collector as well as the photographer. Among the highlights are the 3D Theater, Workshops, virtual Art Gallery, Guest and Keynote Speakers and Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings. There will also be social gatherings on Zoom and other online forums. A highlight will be a symposium on the history of stereoscopic photography.

It is free of charge, but we do accept donations. With a paid registration you will receive a package that includes a commemorative Viewmaster type reel and several types of viewers and glasses you will need to view images presented during the convention.

The 3D-Con website will have a calendar of events and will be updated regularly. Facebook users are encouraged to join the 3D-Con group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/3dcon). There will be ongoing updates and opportunities to connect with other attendees. There will also be spontaneous workshops or social live streams. The group is currently open and may be joined anytime.
