Paatsch Shield Banner

The Paatsch Shield is an Interclub Challenge between Benalla Camera Club & Wodonga Albury Camera Club and takes place annually and is hosted alternately by each club. The hosting club decides and organizes the subject and venue. 12 images from each club are submitted and judged by an independent VAPS Judge.
The hosting club organizes a presentation and venue two months after the event with the club with the highest number of points wins and holds the 'Paatsch Shield' for the following 12 months.
An award is presented by the non-hosting club for the 'Best Image' (1st Place) with certificates presented to the 2nd and 2 Merit placings.
