Website Competition Winners April 2018

Congratulations to Leon Venter from Bethal Fotografieklub!

He is our April winner with his image “Black Heron breakfast”

The photograph was taken from the bird hide in the Zimanga Nature Reserve.  We were watching the Black Heron fishing and trying to capture it’s unusual ‘umbrella’ hunting skills.  It suddenly caught a fish and opened up its wings when I was fortunate to get the shot.

Members of PSSA only are invited to personally enter any one image per month into this competition, and submit it via Photovault at  If you are not a member of PSSA, you can unfortunately not enter this competition.

If your image has won the Senior or Junior club competition at your club during the month, it will be entered in either of those two competitions for the month.  PLEASE do not enter it into the Web site competition as well for obvious reasons.  Remember, it is the same judges that judge all three competitions for a particular month and having the same image in two competitions, Senior or Junior and the Web site competition will disadvantage the image. If your image does not win in the Senior or Junior Club Competition and you would like to enter it into the Web site competition, you can do so as long as it is a month or so later.

The winning image will be displayed on the home page of our Website for the duration of the month.

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