Website Competition Winners January 2020

Leon Venter - Bethal Fotografie Klub - HYENA STOLE CHEETAH KILL

Congratulations to  Leon Venter from Bethal Fotografie Klub

He is our January winner with the image “HYENA STOLE CHEETAH KILL” 

Leon wrote:

“The photograph was taken in the Masaai Mara during October 2019. We came across a cheetah kill and were watching her eating on the Impala.

Two Hyenas and a Jackal suddenly rushed onto the scene and chased her off. The one Hyena then grabbed the carcass and ran away.

It was during this action when I got this photograph.

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. 

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here  doc

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 Website Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
