The Voortrekker Monument and the Heritage Foundation in Pretoria are
planning to publish a birthday calendar on 1 December 2012, to celebrate the
175 years’ commemoration of the battle of Blood River (16 December 1838).
Twelve monuments in South Africa have been selected for inclusion in the

equestrian statue (Union Buildings, Pretoria).
In order to obtain photos of these monuments, for use on the birthday
calendar, photography clubs countrywide will be invited to take part in a photo competition.

After the closing date, (12 October 2012), a panel of experts will
adjudicate the photos submitted for the competition.  Twelve winning photos
will be selected for the birthday calendar (one photo for each month of the year). The overall winner, as well as the second and third runners-up will
receive prizes sponsored by various sponsors.

All members of  JPS photographic club are invited to participate.

As  JPS has had this exciting competition extended to us., we ask you to please enter this competition.
The committee will decide on how to select the photo’s for the club submission and will notify you in the near future of the process regarding submission.
However,  in the mean time, you can get on with visiting the monuments and taking in some history and many pictures.
