Photo Competition

Ons nooi alle lede en takke van die Vereniging uit om deel te neem aan SA Jagters se Fotokompetisie.

Die doel van die kompetisie is om ‘n portefeulje saam te stel van die beste foto’s wat SA Jagters se lede geneem het sodat ons dit tydens die jaarlikse kongres se gala-aand kan vertoon. Die naam van die fotograaf en die tak waaraan die lid behoort, sal by die foto verskyn. Die algehele wenner sal ook genooi word om sy prys by die kongres te kom ontvang

Aan die einde van elke maand sal ons foto’s kies om by hierdie portefeulje in te sluit en dit ook op www.sahunters.co.za publiseer. Erkenning sal gegee word vir die beste foto’s, nl:

  • Brons sertifikaat, vir noemenswaardige inskrywings (maandeliks beoordeel)
  • Silwer sertifikaat vir finaliste wie se foto’s in die portefeulje ingesluit word (maandeliks beoordeel) en
  • Goue sertifikaat vir wenners in elke kategorie (jaarliks)

Die sertifikate sal op die lid se aanlyn-profiel gevoeg word. Ontvangers van hierdie sertifikate sal ‘n ooreenstemmende lap-kenteken van hoofkantoor af kan bestel.
