ADA Aquatic Plant Layout Contest 2008

Discussion in 'General Planted Tank Discussions' started by Tom, 7 Feb 2008.

  1. Anyone have any information on how to enter, or if there's any information anywhere? I've entered one tank through the AGA form (just to say I've done it, not that I'm going to be competitive) but I can't find any other entry forms or anything anywhere else. Is it on the ADA site or something?

    Well the competition has not been announced yet so thats why there are no entry forms, the deadline will be the end of May though. I can't remember when it was announced officially last year, they set up a special web page where you submit your details and photo (singular) and you get confirmation back via email to say they have received your entry. I would say it will be announced soon maybe in the next month or so.

    What did you enter?

    Keep an eye on the pinned threads on the APC Aquascaping sub-forum.

    I entered At Forest's Gate as it gave the option of automatic entry from the AGA entry form.

  7. It's a shame my 60cm won't be ready by then :( It'll still be interesting to see where my last one comes. I take it if you ticked the ADA entry box on the AGA site it's all done for you is it?

    Who else is entering then?

    I'll be entering. Not sure if I'll enter my 'secret' 120cm or current 80cm though.

    I like the AGA because you can enter three and you're guaranteed feedback too.

    Look out for a PFK blog on this too.
     
  13. Do ADA's results just come in the form of the table with all your marks from each judge, or do you get any feedback? I suppose with 1000+ entrants it gets a lot of work to criticise each one.

    You get no individual feedback at all unless you come in the top ten, the top 100 were given the individual judges point scores last year, 2007, for the first time, but no direct feedback.

    Every entrant receives a letter when the judging is completed with your final contest ranking other than that you receive no feedback, just your contest position.

    I want to enter but I won't have a strong enough scape any time soon.
