Point and Shoot Competition #80: COMPETITION!

Lets see your best 'COMPETITION' shots taken with your point and shoots!
(Edit for clarification.) The theme is 'COMPETITION'.
It doesn't have to be just sports.
There are all sorts of competitions that take place in nature such as nestlings pushing each other out the way to be fed first, or bucks fighting for dominance. Competitions that don't involve physical activity also apply such as chess or a spelling bee.
Anything that involves one party(ies) besting another will fit.
Please keep it safe for work folks!

RULES (as per usual):

1. Have lots of fun!
2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1".
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras.
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):

Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras.
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6, Medium Format "folding", "box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras ( subject to 1kg weight limitation).

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close on July 31st, 2014 at Midnight (pst).
4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.
5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. The photos in this contest must have been shot within the last year.
7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter one image, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.
9. Feel free to post a shot ( not judged) which shows off your setup.

a few examples are attached.

Excellent shot, just need to relate it to the theme 'Competition.'
Is she striving to sing louder than her band mates? That'll qualify it

Some fishy competition

Only a small handful of fish pellets was enough to get these Koi and many more of their cousins to gather and quickly snap up their share. Hope, this one will be okay, if not I've got some fuzzy horse show pics

Panasonic FZ150, ~200mm, f3.5 1/500. with a hand held polarizer over the lens, (which sort of worked)

They are competing for food so yes!

Great shot but what is the connection to the topic so it can qualify?
Competing for space on the shelf?
Competing for your attention?
Maybe it is an art contest?

Well it may be a bit lame, but the images go from the center in two directions, so the progressions are competing to some extent--which way do you go..? Just trying to keep in the game here.

Fur vs Feathers

Who will rule the seed pile? Canon ( I know) PowerShot SX110IS. Hard to shoot with such a slow lens at max zoom. Cropped to "increase" the 10X optical zoom.

Thanks
