New Year Message from PX3 Founder and President, Hossein Farmani:

As Founder and President of Farmani Group, it has always been a core part of my life’s mission to support worthy causes and those in need. In 1987 I set up the Focus On AIDS foundation, a volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to AIDS research, care, and education. A few years later I started the Asha Karina hospital for children in Mysore India, and since then, my organization has continued its unceasing efforts to support charity organizations and foundations all over the world.
 
In 2020, as the world faced unprecedented challenges, Farmani Group stepped up in a big way. The International Design Awards gave $15,000 in grants to designers, challenging them to find ways to solve crucial problems related to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We also committed to match all cash prizes given to winners of our photography awards with donations to local charities selected by the winning photographers, in their local communities.
Through these avenues, over $80,000 has been donated in 2020 to organisations and people in need all over the world.
 
As we say goodbye to 2020 and greet a new year, I know we all hope that in 2021, with the COVID vaccine on its way, we will have a better and happier year ahead of us. But whatever the future brings, Farmani Group is committed to doing our part in bringing awareness to global challenges and helping those in need in whatever way we can.
 
And we encourage you to take a moment and consider how you, too, can contribute to improve the lives of those in need in your community.
We wish each of you a Happy New year!

Order Annual PX3 book No. 14 (2020) + “State of the World” exhibition

It is with regret that we write to let you know that due to the current situation with the Covid-19  Pandemic and local restrictions in France, we have had to once again postpone the Px3 Winners exhibition which was scheduled December 14 to December 20, 2020, at Espace Beaurepaire in Paris, until further notice.

We sincerely regret the circumstances which have made this decision necessary, and not being able to exhibit your outstanding work as planned. We are hoping to reschedule the exhibition for some time in 2021. We will be working with our partners to finalize the details and will share more information about our plans as soon as it is possible to reschedule.

We look forward to celebrating your talent and presenting your images to the creative circles of Paris when it becomes safe for all participants.
