Senior Club Competition Winners April 2024

Theo Potgieter from Tafelberg Fotografieklub is our April winner!

Theo, congratulations on your winning image – Waiting for the rain

Theo says:-

“Waiting for the rain” is a composite of 3 images i.e. the rhinos (photographed in Mkuze Game Reserve), cracked mud (photographed near Ceres) and background (photographed in the Kalahari).

The objective was to show how vulnerable our rhinos are to climate change (the cracked mud) and poaching (they are dehorned).

A big thank you to my friend and mentor, Martin Barber, who assisted me in polishing the image.

Our 1st runner-up is Francois Oosthuysen from Vereeniging Photographic Society with “The Defender”
Our 2nd runner-up is Letmari Dreeckmeier from MFFC with “We made it”

Thank you to the judges:

Cynthia Uren – Southern Suburbs Camera Club
Dave Mullin – Amber Camera Club
Cobus Eksteen – Krugersdorp 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 Senior Club Competition Winner of the Month, a club representative (ideally the Chairperson) submits the Senior 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.
