Meet Your Neighbours Co-Founder Clay Bolt was honored to accept the North American Nature Photography Association‘s 2015 Environmental Impact award on behalf of Meet Your Neighbours during the annual summit in San Diego last week. Clay writes, “The last recipient was the incredible James Balog so its significance isn’t lost on me. More importantly, I was so touched to be on stage with many of my dearest friends and colleagues who have really been the ones to make the project a reality.” From the left: Chris Linder, Kevin FitzPatrick, Paul Marcellini, Roy Toft, Sheri Mandel, Nathan Dappen, Krista Schlyer, Clay Bolt, Neil Losin, Gabby Salazar, Karine Aigner and Paul Hassell.

Meet Your Neighbours photographers have been sharing their work all over the world and this past weekend two events of special note took place: In Jacksonville, Florida MYN co-founder Clay Bolt and contributors Paul Marcellini, Nate Dappen and Krista Schlyer presented during a 2-hour at the North American Nature Photography Association’s annual Summit. Across the Atlantic, Dutch contributor Joris van Alphen presented in Amsterdam during PIXperience. In fact, Joris’ presentation featured the largest MYN panel to date at nearly 200′ across! He presented images from his recent expedition to Borneo with the Dutch edition of National Geographic. Way to go Joris!
