Photo Competition

(English below)


Deelname aan die Vereniging se fotokompetisie het jaarliks toegeneem en ons nooi weer eens alle lede van die Vereniging uit om aan die 2022 Amateur Fotokompetisie deel te neem. Die doel van die kompetisie is om die fotoportefeulje van die Vereniging uit te brei. Die 2022 kompetisie is oop vanaf 1 Oktober 2021 tot en met 30 September 2022. Lede kan 5 fotos per maand inskryf oor die kategorië van hulle keuse soos hier onder uiteengesit.

Beoordelaars sal die foto’s volgens kwalitiet en die temas van die jaar beoordeel.


Inskrywings word maandeliks beoordeel. Erkenning aan kwalifiserende foto’s word as volg toegeken:

  • 60% tot 74%: Brons sertifikaat
  • 75% tot 89%: Silwer sertifikaat
  • 90% tot 100%: Goue sertifikaat

Alle foto’s wat sertifikate verdien sal op die Vereniging se gala-aand vertoon word met volledige erkenning aan die lid en tak. Die sertifikate sal op die lid se aanlyn-profiel gevoeg word sodat lede ooreenstemmende fotografie lapkentekens via hulle takke kan bestel.


Slegs die eerste brons, silwer of goue sertifikaat vir die jaar sal outomaties op die lid se profiel geplaas word, maar lede kan die daaropvolgende sertifikate aanvra. Alle foto’s wat sertifikate verdien sal maandeliks op die vereniging se webwerf geplaas word.


Aan die einde van die jaar word ʼn wenner in elke kategorie aangewys en ʼn Foto-van-die-jaar gekies. Die wenner van die Foto-van-die-Jaar, sal na die Vereniging se gala-aand genooi word.

 

Die kategorieë vir die 2022 Amateur Fotokompetisie is soos volg:

    1) Fauna en Flora DSLR / spiëlloos (alles in die natuur inheems tot Suider Afrika)
    2) Fauna en Flora Slimfoon (alles in die natuur inheems tot Suider Afrika)
    3) Takaktiwiteite en Bewaring DSLR / spieëlloos / slimfoon (al die doen en late op takvalk)
    4) Die Skietbaan DSLR / spieëlloos / slimfoon (al die aktiwiteite op die skietbaan, let wel, vuurwapen en skietbaan veiligheid met te alles tyd gehandhaaf word wanneer fotos geneem word)
