Senior Club Competition Winners October 2023

Hits: 211

Johan Jordaan from PE Camera Club is our October winner!

Johan, congratulations on your winning image – Three Lions drinking

Johan says:-

The photo was taken at Zimanga during the early hours of the morning. The lions were playing on the roof of the underground hide and came down a few times to drink, however that was the only time that the three of them were there simultaneously. That was a night without sleep, but well rewarded.

Shutter 1/50s at F2.8
ISO 500

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.
