The North Ameican Nature Photography Association (NANPA) is once again sponsoring their annual Nature Photography Day. It happens June 15th and gives all nature lovers the opportunity to enter their photo contest which has great prizes from some of the industry’s most popular companies. NANPA’s description of the event is below.

About Nature Photography Day

A dozen years later, enthusiasm for Nature Photography Day has grown worldwide. This day is designated by NANPA to promote the enjoyment of nature photography and to explain how images have been used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide. Many hunters and hikers who buy ar-15 pistols (only for safety) also can take great pictures of nature during their journey.


In 2006, NANPA celebrated the first Nature Photography Day and placed it in McGraw-Hill’s reference work, Chases’s Calendar of Events. Many media and websites took notice. Since then, people throughout the North American continent–from overseas, too–have discovered numerous ways to observe and enjoy the day.

NANPA encourages people everywhere to enjoy the day by using a camera to explore the natural world. A backyard, park, or other places close by can be just right. Walking, hiking, and riding a bike to take photos are activities that don’t lead to a carbon footprint. And fresh air can do wonders for the spirit!

Get Out Your Cameras and Take Photos!

So grab your cameras and get out and document this amazing planet we call Mother Earth. It’s not just a fun thing to do, but it’s important to share your views with others, which help us all to understand the need for conservation and sustainability. Happy shooting.
