Share your love for NAPCP with your community!

Applications for 2023 are now closed.

The National Association of Professional Child Photographers is striving to bring together a community of passionate artists committed to growing their skills, their artistry, and their business. The best way to do this is through face-to-face connections! To be considered for NAPCP Ambassador status in the NAPCP community, please check back next year. Applications for 2023 are now closed.

Our NAPCP Ambassadors are the eyes, ears, and faces of NAPCP in their local communities, throughout the world. Additionally, NAPCP Ambassadors will provide leadership and positive influence in our private NAPCP Member Community Facebook group and hosted events. NAPCP Gatherings take place any time during a specified week. We ask that applicants make sure that they are available during these weeks before committing to being an Ambassador.
