Photo & Film Expo 2013

This is an annual event that is part of the PSSA calendar and which presented the perfect opportunity to showcase our society from 31 Oct to 3 Nov 2013.  A big thank you to our 20 PSSA members who helped at our stand. The stand did us all proud and the attention it attracted was fantastic. Hundreds of enthusiastic amateur photographers were directed to clubs in their areas. A warm welcome to all our new members who joined our society at the Expo, we look forward to meeting you at the various clubs around SA!

The two competition categories for this year’s competition were Colour Scapes and Monochrome.  Approximately 3000 members of the public visited the stand in the Coca Cola Dome and 1169 participated in casting their votes for the two different categories.  Congratulations to our winners!
