Website Competition Winners May 2018

Congratulations to Bennie Vivier from Tygerberg Photographic Society!

He is our May winner with his image “Waterhole”

I took this image at Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana from one of the underground hides. We waited the entire morning but did not see elephants at the waterhole. This herd approached the waterhole while we were packing to leave and it was a wonderful surprise. They were very close and I used a 10 – 20mm wide angle lens to get this image. It was a once in lifetime experience for me to see them so close and a privilege to attend one of the C4 Photo Safaris.



Our 1st runner-up is Con Wolfaardt from Eden Photographic Society with “Little Bee-eater”

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.
