What they are:
Awards fit two broad categories:
NANPA Recognition Awards – Awarded in recognition of one’s accomplishments, stature or length of service to nature photography.
NANPA Service Awards – Awarded to recognize a member who has served NANPA in an extraordinary way. These awards might go to committee leaders, a newsletter editor, etc. Service Awards may be given out at different times than Recognition Awards (e.g., the Annual Business Meeting).
When they happen:
Winners are usually announced in April of each year, with awards presented at the following NANPA Summit. Not all awards are presented annually.
How they’re decided:
- The NANPA Awards Committee accepts nominations for all NANPA awards and grants.
- The Awards Committee selects and evaluates candidates for each award and makes recommendations to the NANPA Board of Directors.
- The Board of Directors (with possible assistance from the Advisory Council) approves recipients.
Make a nomination:
Any member can nominate a deserving candidate.
