Website Competition Winners June 2018

Congratulations to Simon Fletcher from Rustenburg Photographic Society!

He is our June winner with his image “Streaky Sunrise Clouds”

We spent a week down at Umhlanga in April and by all accounts the weather was perfect – in fact too perfect! Sunny days and no rain or stormy weather. However every morning at 05h00 without fail, I would go down to one of my favorite places in Umhlanga, the dinosaur pier. This morning luckily there were some stunning cloud formations with a tree stump lying on the beach, which added to the image in the form of interesting foreground. The long exposure with the very low tide really came to life once I had converted the image to monochrome. I was pleased that the perseverance of getting up early paid off.



Our 1st runner-up is Leon Venter from Bethal Fotografieklub with “The Dance”

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.

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