Washington, D.C. The Copyright Alliance, which represents the copyright interests of over 1.8 million individual creators and more than 13,000 organizations across the spectrum of copyright disciplines, announced the addition of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) as its newest member.

Incorporated in 1994 and headquartered in Illinois, NANPA promotes the art and science of nature photography as a medium of communication, nature appreciation, and environmental protection. NANPA also provides information and education to all who are interested in nature photography; and fosters excellence and ethical conduct, especially encouraging responsible photography in the wild. With a diverse base that represents amateur photographers, industry professionals, and the world’s top professional nature photographers, NANPA brings together its members to network and promote the profession and pastime, and to share photography and inspiration by hosting various educational events and photo competitions.

According to NANPA Executive Director Susan Day, “We’re very pleased to join the Copyright Alliance, and look forward to working with its staff and with fellow members as we continue to advocate for numerous important initiatives impacting our members Ð including supporting H.R. 3945, a bi-partisan bill that calls for creating a small claims court for creators who can’t afford federal court as a means of protecting their copyrighted works.”

According to Copyright Alliance CEO Keith Kupferschmid, “We’re thrilled to welcome NANPA and its members to the Alliance’s community of copyright stakeholders. As North America’s premiere nature photography organization, NANPA brings a wealth of knowledge and history in broadly representing nature photographers, and a strong commitment to protecting the copyright interests of its members.”
