Junior Club Competition Winners June 2023

Claudette Gericke from Knysna Photographic Society is our June winner!

Claudette, congratulations on your winning image – Bearded Vulture

Claudette says:

I took this photo in April 2023 in the Drakensberg at a bird hide with a Canon 7D Mark II and a Canon 300mm F2.8 lens. It was my first experience to photograph the shy, elusive lammergeiers…a magical moment at eye level contact with these majestic birds.

Our 1st Runner-up is Jacques Lourens from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with “Slow down”
Our 2nd Runner-up is Dina van Wyk from National Photographic Club  with “Simplicity”

Thank you to the judges:

  • Evelyn Gibson – Cape Town Photographic Society
  • Lynne Kruger-Haye – Ignite Photographic Club
  • Paul Rixom – George Camera Club

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?

This is a PSSA monthly competition where clubs enter their monthly Senior winner onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning image.  The monthly winner gets displayed on the home page of our Web site for the duration of the month.  

For the Junior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the Junior club winner via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.

Click here to download instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault

Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Senior Club Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
