NPA MEMBERS GALLERY - check out the fantastic photography featuring hundreds of NPA competitors - and be inspired!

The most popular section of the NPA web-site is the MEMBERS GALLERY. Check out all the hundreds of photographs of NPA members, featuring the outstanding photography of Fivos Averkiou, the NPA's official photographer, with additional contributions from Eric Guy, Alex McKenna, and Michael Phillips, among others. The NPA Members Gallery will be updated after every competition this year, and will hopefully feature every single competitor. As a way of trying to keep the Gallery up to date, only members from 2014, 2013, and competitors from the NPA British Finals of 2012, are featured. Here's a great, feel-good photo of top NPA Trained Figure competitor ANTONIETTA MOCH, taken at the 2014 NPA Midlands Championships by Fivos. Enjoy the great photography, and be inspired and encouraged to be the best you can be, naturally, of course!
