Interclub Competition: Oxford Greens vs Flagpole Photographers

Fun, yet challenging, 1-to-1 digital competition in 25 categories

Each club will submit one digital image in each of the 25 categories. A single judge will select the “better” photo in each category. The club with the most “better” photos takes home the trophy! Booing and cheering are encouraged as well as bribing or teasing the judge.
This is 2 competitions in one. First, we have an internal competition to choose our best photo for each category. That’s 25 categories! Then, we have an head to head (photo to photo) external competition with Oxford Greens. Our best photo against their best photo for each category.
