About Our Image Competitions

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.”

― Roy T. Bennett

The National Association of Portrait and Child Photographers (NAPCP) recognizes the accomplishments and creative excellence of its portrait and child photographer members. When it comes to you and your photography business, our goal is to make you stand out! Whatever your level of experience, your status as a professional is to be celebrated.

NAPCP hosts two Image Competitions each year, one digital competition and one print competition.

Image competitions reward talent with medallions, priority listing on our directory, vendor endorsements, member points, titles and professional recognition.

NAPCP’s International Image Competition is a globally acclaimed annual digital/online photography competition judged by some of the industry’s best.

In contrast to our digital image competition, the NAPCP Inspired Gallery Event is creative in nature and will give both members and non-members the chance to place in one of three categories.

The NAPCP Inspired Gallery Event is an exclusive event dedicated to the art of photography. Express your most creative self and elevate your craft.
