That is certainly not the application they sent to me! It required a membership number in a professional organization AND either a UPS or FedEX member number!I am a NPS member and they only asked for 5 images, and what I shoot, if I shoot for anyone.. web site... nothing more.. fast and simple.. you have to list all your Nikon gear to qualify.
I got my NPS status approved a couple months ago without a professional organization membership or making any claim as to my professional status. Some sample images and a link to my website seemed to be enough. You do need a UPS or FedEx account (free to set up) because that is how they ship you equipment to try out.That is certainly not the application they sent to me!

20% off service works for me and they seem to go faster with NPS serviceREALLY OFF TOPIC - but - regarding membership in NPS....
I finally figured out the application form. It says one must be able to do 2 of the following. I was thinking I had to do the first two. (below from memory...)
Membership in a professional organization
2-4 images published in the last year
submit 2-5 images
Well.......... I could do the last two! LOL!
So I submitted an application late yesterday afternoon (my gear total was 2,000 - LOL!)
And this morning I received an acceptance email.
woooHOOOO! I have a free membership with hundreds of millions of other Nikon owners! Now if only they gave a discount on new gear!!!!!
