Website Competition Winners October 2018

2018 10 Dries Fourie Vereeniging Photographic Society Real time Pain

Congratulations to Dries Fourie from Vereeniging Photographic Society

He is our October winner with the image “Real time Pain”

I took a series of these Rodeo Photos at XL Centre, Hartford, USA. I had a vision in my subconscious mind to create something spectacular with one of these photos.
I wanted to exaggerate the motion and power of the Bull…..but at the same time, to place the focus and tension on the fallen Cowboy. Therefore I had to fill in a background with drama to enhance the scene in the foreground.



Our 1st runner-up is Alexius van der Westhuizen from Southern Suburbs Camera Club with “Mbenge vs Cruz”

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. 

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded 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.
