Website Competition Winners April 2024

Theo Potgieter from Tafelberg Fotografieklub is our April winner! He is our Senior Winner too!

Theo, congratulations on your winning image – Clash of the Titans

Theo says:

Clash of the Titans” was shot in Addo Elephant National Park with a Nikon D7500 at f6, Iso 900, Sigma 100-400, f5.0-f6.3 lens. 

I liked the image but it was no good for wildlife and had a very busy background.  Thus I added a broody background and did some creative post-processing to turn it into a dramatic scene. 

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

Our 1st Runner-up is Corine Ross from Krugersdorp Camera Club with “Skyscraper Abstract”
Our 2nd Runner-up is Geo Jooste from Bloemfontein Kameraklub with “Geel gogga”

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 authors enter their own image onto Photovault. Appointed judges select the winning image.  The monthly winner gets displayed on the home page of our website for the duration of the month.  

Entries for the website competition are entered by the authors themselves 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 uses 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 Website Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
