Member Photo Submissions

Thanks for your interest in submitting photos for NANPA's website!

Photo submissions are accepted from current NANPA members only. Not a member yet? Join right here!

Submitting your photos is a great way increase the visibility and marketing reach of your nature photography. This is a significant member benefit and available to all members.

Photos submitted by members are displayed on our website on a rotational basis (see below). There is no charge for submissions for these photos. However, the large photo appearing on our front page each day is the result of a juried competition, performed annually, known as the NANPA Showcase. For more information on submitting photos for consideration in the Showcase, please see the Showcase intro page.

Placement and Rotation -

Currently, ten photos are selected by software each day to appear in the "Daily Sampler" on NANPA's website. These photos are used to fill the scrolling banner at the top of our pages. We have implemented an automated rotation system that selects the next set of photos from the available pool once each day. When the list is exhausted, we start back at the beginning and continue. So, each day you visit NANPA's website, you will see a different set of photos.

Members are notified by e-mail if one of their photos was selected for the Daily Sampler.
