The North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) is again providing an opportunity for up to ten college students to attend NANPA’s Fourteenth Annual Nature Photography Summit in Destin, FL from February 26-March 2, 2008.
Students qualify for scholarships via an application process which includes a portfolio submission. Applicants must be full-time students at a two or four year college, university or trade school and be at least 18 years of age by December 31, 2007.
A major in art or photography is not required, but, since students are applying to attend a nature photography summit, it is helpful if they demonstrate their interest and skill in nature photography.
The deadline for applications is November 12, 2007.
At the Destin, Florida, Summit, students will be treated to a pre-summit photo field trip, daily sessions with professionals, portfolio reviews, time with keynote speakers and the opportunity to interact with mentors throughout the conference. The scholarship students will also be given the opportunity to explore and apply for a variety of photography internships.
NANPA is an international nature photography organization whose mission is to provide education, foster professional and ethical conduct, gather and disseminate information, and to develop standards for all persons interested in the field of nature photography.
NANPA also promotes nature photography as an art form and a medium of communication for the sciences, nature appreciation and environmental protection.
