The Paatsch Shield Challenge 2015
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.
'Finding the past at Beechworth' was this year's theme and took place in August with a photoshoot taking place at the Cemetery and in and around Mayday Hills. The presentation was held in November.
This year's challenge winner was the Wodonga/Albury Camera Club and the 'Best Photo' winner was Wendy Stanford WACC.
