Congratulations to Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society
He is our July winner with the image “Martial Eagle – biggest eagle in Africa”
The Marshall Eagle is the biggest and certainly, the most majestic of all birds in Africa. Once again it is impossible to expose such an apex predator in a single picture. The Portraiture shows off the sharpness and beauty in those big bright yellow eyes, combined with a heavy powerful beak. The Feeding eagle with its prey is a living symbol of power, freedom and transcendence.
These images were taken in the Kruger Park combined with a late sunset also from the same region.
Our 1st runner-up is Louise de Lange from Tafelberg Fotografieklub with “Lady in Red”
Our 2nd runner-up is Peter Thomas from Brandpunt Fotoklub with “Sidecar racing”
Thank you to the judges:
Andre Norris – Centurion CC
Malie v.d. Vyver – NPC
Gonnie Myburgh – NPC

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?
Members of PSSA only are invited to personally enter any one image per month into this competition, and submit it via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com. 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.
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.
