The Paatsch Shield Challenge 2015

Paatsch Shield Presentation

This competition is held between the Benalla and Wodonga/Albury Camera Clubs each year, with the host club choosing the date, location and theme. Both clubs meet for the photo shoot, then each club chooses 12 images to represent the club. The hosting club then sends all the EDI images to a judge for scoring.
