Three Shadows Photography Award ( TSPA ) The project was founded in 2009. Every year, it collects photographic works from emerging Chinese photographers around the world. Based on academic thinking and independent understanding of contemporary photography as the starting point, international judges are invited. Artists and works of artistic potential, examine, sort out and study Chinese contemporary photography; at the same time, introduce the cutting-edge Chinese contemporary photography to the general public by means of professional production, review, exhibition and publication, thereby promoting the development of Chinese contemporary photography.


The Unbounded ProjectThe project was initiated by Three Shadows Xiamen Photography Art Centre, and openly solicited works/plans from artists/curators around the world. The selected artists/curators will hold a month-long exhibition in Three Shadows Xiamen. The "Unbounded" project aims to discover more art creators and provide them with a professional platform to display their works/projects. At the same time, through this project, art lovers will be connected, making "Boundless" a broad platform for display and communication.
