Website Competition Winners March 2022

Tania CHOLWICH AFO Photography Club Reed Cormorant Catching Fish

Tania Cholwich from AFO Photography Club is our March winner!

Tania, congratulations on your winning image – Read Cormorant Catching Fish

Tania says:
During a recent Photographic Safari with Wildpix Africa, on the Chobe River, we came across this Reed Cormorant catching fish. It was late afternoon with excellent golden light and a clean background which ensured the perfect photographic opportunity.

The Reed Cormorant struggled to swallow the Squeaker and he dropped it several times in the water as an attempt to swallow it head first.

This catch was really a mouthfull but the Cormorant succeeded and walked away very proudly.

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 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.
