The 2008 edition of the InterClub Contest was held on April 15th at the JCCC, hosted by the JCCC. Thirty entries were selected by each club to compete for the InterClub score, but any photographer that submitted entries for consideration had one entry submitted for scoring. While these scores did not count toward the club total, they did count toward an overall Highpoint and 2nd High Point Award for each club. Thus several photographers were recognized individually in addition to the entire club’s work being seen and judged. The judges were Rob Sjulander, Richard Wright, and Sandy Kornhauser.

CPC                   532
JCC                   521
NEWTOWN        497
