The Society is supported entirely by membership dues, gifts, and various fundraising activities.

2016 Photo Contest

It's time for our fifth photo contest!  The photos will be used to create a NNPS Calendar for 2017. Each member may submit up to four photos. Please do not submit photos that were entered in previous years. 

Photos must not contain watermarks, trademarks, or other personally identifiable markings. The photographers will be credited on the calendar. The original photos must be at least 3300 pixels wide and/or 2500 pixels tall to print properly.  The webmaster will contact photographers for original photos after the voting.

Submission Deadline September 22nd, 2016.   Voting for favorites will begin September 30th.

We are also taking pre-orders for the calendars.  This allows us to order the right number of calendars.  Pre-ordered calendars will be available at cost plus postage (or pick up for free in Reno, Carson City, or Henderson) but we will not know the cost for each until we have the order ready.  We anticipate a printing cost between $10 and $12 depending on the number of calendars ordered.  The calendar will also be available for purchase from our online store.

You must log in to your account to create entries.
