Website Competition Winners February 2018

Congratulations to Johan Drotsky from Bethal Fotografieklub!

He is our February winner with his image “Die ryp is dik vanmôre”

You get a couple of perfect winter mornings on the Highveld. It has to be very cold and misty. This results in lots of frost and backgrounds that’s hidden from sight.

On mornings like this you have to get out of bed and the environment will do most of the work for you. We took a lot of pictures and when we returned home before closing a gate I looked back and saw this sight. 

Just grabbed my camera and this was the result.



Our 1st runner-up is Leon Pelser from Sasol Highveld Photography Club with “View from the inside”

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.
