Website Competition Winners Nov 2018

Malievan der Vyver National Photographic Club Jackal and Vulture Interaction A3

Congratulations to Malie van der Vyver from National Photographic Club

She is our November winner with the image “Jackal and Vulture Interaction”

I was fortunate to witness and photograph the interaction between a jackal and vultures. They were fighting to have the scraps of a carcass. The jackal did not want the vultures to have any piece of the action and defended the scraps time and time again. However, the vultures were just too many and at the end of the day, he had to surrender to the multitude of vultures.

Taken with a Canon 1D X Mark II with the 100-400mm lens at 182mm, f 7.1, shutter speed 1/1600.



Our 1st runner-up is Aubrey Siebert from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with “Uri”

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.
