NANPA now offers travel/event insurance protection during registration for its Summit, Celebration and Regional Events to handle cancellations that are necessary after someone registers for an event. Registrants have the option of purchasing event insurance as part of the registration process. We strongly encourage registrants to purchase the travel/event insurance during registration, as NANPA will not offer any refunds, and the event insurance will also cover transportation costs that you booked in conjunction with the Summit. If you did not purchase the event insurance at the time of registration, you are encouraged to purchase event insurance through a NANPA partner, USI Affinity | Travel Insurance Services. Click here for more information about its services.

Refunds are only available for Super Sessions and pre- and post-Summit field excursions if an attendee registers for them in the same transaction as his/her Summit registration and purchases the event/travel insurance. Refunds are not offered for any portfolio review registrations.

NANPA reserves the right to cancel any event or activity due to insufficient registration or any unforeseen circumstances and, if this is necessary, NANPA will offer refunds if NANPA has to cancel the event. NANPA also has the right to substitute presenters if those originally scheduled cannot attend.


Q. My spouse is coming with me to Las Vegas. Can he/she eat lunches and attend the keynote sessions with me?

A. Only if he/she purchases a Summit Companion Pass ticket ($225). This ticket includes:

Thursday – Welcome activities and keynote session
Friday – Keynote sessions and lunch
Saturday – Keynote sessions and lunch
Throughout the Summit – Admission to the trade show

Q. I already registered for the Summit, but I didn’t register for a Super Session that I’ve now decided to attend. How do I register for the Super Session?

A. Go to the Nature Photography Summit registration link as if you are registering again. Instead of choosing a Summit ticket on the “Attendee Selections” tab, choose the “Super Sessions Only” ticket in the top section. Then choose the specific Super Session(s) you want to attend in the “Add Super Sessions” section. Continue with checkout process as normal.

Q. I’m not seeing the Super Session listed that I want to attend. How do I see Sunday’s options?

A. Click on the “Sunday, February 24, 2019 Starts Ends” header, and the Sunday Super Session offerings will appear.

Q. I already registered for the Summit and now I’ve decided to attend the night photography/light painting field event the night before. How do I add that to my registration?

A. Go to the Summit registration page and login, if you’re a NANPA member. Complete the name/address information, including the captcha box at the bottom, then click the “Next” button at the bottom of the page. On the second screen, choose “Field Excursions Only” in the required ticket section then choose which photography field excursion(s) you wish to attend and complete the checkout process.


Attendance at, or participation in, NANPA meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the registrant to the use and distribution of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videotapes, electronic reproductions, and audiotapes of such events and activities by NANPA and other third parties.
