"It was the first weekend of November 2019, and it was very, very dry in the Kruger National Park. We were sitting at the Boyela waterhole, north of Shingwedzi Camp, watching elephant, red hartebeest and impala come and go. 

 

Then the zebras arrived, herds of them, galloping anxiously to the water. Being the only water for kilometres, the zebras were very jittery, and in a fighting mood around the water. 

A cloud of dust suddenly drew my attention, two young males on their hind legs… it was chaos! They were kicking and biting non-stop! 

The dust, the kick, and the dodge contributed to a very special image"

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.
