Triptych Exhibition

APSCON 2018 Triptych Print Exhibition Information

A Triptych Print Exhibition is being held at APSCON 2018. A triptych is a set of three associated works, intended to be appreciated together and displayed on one common background, as one single image. Together the images MUST tell a story.

APS members are invited to submit two works. Each triptych will have three images, in landscape format, with the background measurements being 483mm x 329mm. These images will not be matted and will be attached to the fabric backed display boards with Velcro dots or pins, so please leave a border on your work. Once you are satisfied with your work, please flatten your one submission, and send the file like that. If you are submitting 2 works then both will be flattened before sending.

Triptych Instructions:

1. Subject: Open - must tell a story.
2. Definition: 3 images on one background that tell a story.
3. The triptychs will be professionally printed by “Living Image” in Brisbane.
4. Limit of 2 triptychs per person
5. Total Cost: $27.50 per print. $20 per print, $7.50 test prints and express postage.
6. Living Image will store all the prints until they are picked up by the committee prior to APSCON.
7. Paper stock used: Subtle Satin (white)
8. Size A3+ (483mm x 329mm) Landscape format
9. Leave a 25mm white border inside that area although they can print to the edges. HOWEVER, the prints will be pinned to a board so you need a white area (the prints will not be matted.)
10. The size of your final image must fit within the A3+.


1. Send an email of your intent to submit to:
2. You will receive an invoice and further information.
3. Pay for the printing via the invoice details.
4. A small test photo of your triptych will be posted to you.
5. You will need to confirm if the print is acceptable or not.
6. The triptych will then be printed, and stored at Living Image until print exhibition organisers pick them all up together.
7. The Best option 16bit AdobeRGB TIFF file 300dpi at the print size, no layers, no extra channels, no compression (these are very big files and it’s suggested to use Dropbox or a similar service to send these). Almost as good, but much easier to send sRGB JPEG file 300dpi at the print size.
8. The latest you can send your triptychs is the 24th August.

Example of your artboard size.



Below, are some examples of how your images could be arranged to tell the story that you are conveying. The blue background represents the complete file and the white areas represent the images. The background can be any colour that you think suits your images.
