Website Competition Winners March 2018

Congratulations to Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society

He is our March winner with his image “I am a survivor”

For more than a year I drove past John, always sitting next to the road in a wheel chair. One day I stopped and ask him to take a picture of him. John had gangrene when he was a youngster and lost both his legs. There was an old rock ruin high up on a hill, I took him there and carried John on my back to the dilapidated ruin were I took the photo. Twice we both fell on the uneven plain, but that was all good memories of this photo session.

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. 

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.
