Architecture!

Three teams of architects bid for the contract to build a new community center. Teams are drawn from the community, and presumably would be using the community center once it's built.

Team N creates a proposal where the entire building enables the community to create art, providing a lavish stage area and many rooms for props, costumes, and make-up; art studios; basement rooms for pottery wheels and kilns; and dance rooms.

Team G creates a proposal where the building provides the community with an olympic pool, basketball courts, raquetball courts, and expansive fields for baseball and soccer.

Team S creates a proposal where the building itself is a beautiful work of art that the community can experience and appreciate.

The three teams present their plans, and while they can certainly see the appeal of each others' plans, and may even go so far as to complement each other on their plans, for some reason they don't collaborate to create a beautiful community center where their competition is a work of art.

I dunno, I just was melancholy and frustrated. ;)
