Website Competition Winners July 2018

Johan Drotsky Bethal Fotografie Klub Frosty willow

Congratulations to Johan Drotsky from Bethal Fotografie Klub!

He is our June winner with his image “Frosty Willow”

I was traveling to Harrismith one very cold morning. Just before Standerton I saw this willow tree with frost all over it and the grass around it. Fortunately I had my camera with me and I could take this photo
The biggest advantage I had was that I had early morning light with Mist behind the trees to ubscure the background.


Our 1st runner-up is Aubrey Siebert from Southerns Suburbs Camer Club with “Masai Mara Kill”

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 dowloaded here  doc

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