The NANPA Foundation is pleased to announce that the $5000 Philip Hyde Conservation Grant will be open for applications from October 15, 2023, through November 15, 2023.   Thanks to an anonymous $2500 donation, the Foundation can increase the annual award to $5000.  This conservation grant is awarded by the NANPA Foundation to an individual NANPA member who is actively pursuing completion of a peer-reviewed environmental project that is consistent with the missions of NANPA and the NANPA Foundation.

Many people refer to Philip Hyde as the underappreciated master landscape photographer of the 20th Century. His photographs participated in more environmental campaigns than those of any other photographer. At the birth of the modern environmental movement, he was one of the primary illustrators of the groundbreaking Sierra Club Exhibit Format Series. He dedicated his life to defending Western American wilderness, working with the Wilderness Society, National Audubon and others. His color landscapes inspired a generation of photographers, while helping to establish color photography as a fine art. His photographs helped protect Dinosaur National Monument, the Grand Canyon, the Coast Redwoods, Point Reyes, King’s Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, the North Cascades, Canyonlands, the Wind Rivers, Big Sur and many other National Parks and wilderness areas.
