It may seem like an obsession towards the number 3.
We believe that time contained in three minutes, as captured in three camera shots, is enough to tell a story, we believe this for MAX3MIN as we do for this new triptych photography festival.
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 July and September 2021 the very first edition of 3SHOTS will open its submissions for the official festival. 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 in which the audience and the jury will decide the winners.
The author of the winning triptych will get a cash prize.
