The National Association for Photographers (NAP) has introduced the Best Photography category in its annual convention.
The new category, which will be unveiled on Saturday, will recognize the most innovative, high-quality and original work by a photographer working in the United States.
The winners of the National Best Photographic Award will be announced on Sunday.
The NAP says the winner will receive an award of up to $1 million.
The best photographers will receive a cash prize of up for $500,000 and will be given a $1,000,000 prize.
The winner will also receive an additional $100,000 for a photo of an artist whose work has been featured in National Geographic, People, ABC News Magazine and other publications.
The National Association is one of the largest professional association for photographers in the world.
It is founded by National Geographic Society president Michael Arkin, a retired U.S. Army general, and the award-winning photographer William Sargent.
The awards, which are based on the most popular photographs and selected by the NAP’s board of directors, are the result of a partnership between the Nap and the American Photographers Association, which represents thousands of photographers, including Robert Crumb, Bill Cosby, Bob Dylan and many others.
