    Hi Nelson,
    There will be a qualifier, where you need to take part: details here

    QUALIFICATION ROUND

    How to Enter

    Email a jpeg image of your own hardscape layout to admin@ukaps.org by 1200GMT, February 20th 2016.

    Rules
    • It can be a current layout or one from a previous work
    • One entry per person
    • It must be hardscape-only and not an aquascape with plants and water
    • It must be your own work

    • Entries must be submitted by 1200GMT, 20th February 2016
    • If you enter you MUST be able to attend the UKAPS Aquascaping Experience on Saturday 5th March 2016
    • Overseas entrants are welcome but they must be able to fund their own travel and accommodation
    • We politely request that your submission image is not deliberately made public until after the announcement
    Judging

    Judging of the qualification-stage hardscape layouts will be completed by UKAPS Founders, Dan Crawford and George Farmer.

    The Hardscape Challenge layouts at the UKAPS Aquascaping Experience will be judged by the UKAPS Aquascaping Experience Committee - Dan Crawford, George Farmer, Paulo Leal, Antoni Dimitrov, Stu Worrall and Eduard Gercog.

    Special Guest Judges - Jeremy Gay (Evolution Aqua and previous IAPLC judge) and Nathan Hill (PFK Features Editor).

    Announcements

    Can you simply turn up to this or do you need to sign up somewhere? I understand that entry is free,but just wondered if it was a turn up and walk in on the day kind of thing, or if you needed to have your name down in advance. It looks like a great event, and just the sort of thing that would really help relatively inexperienced aquascapers like myself :)

    It will be brilliant if you can confirm that you are coming on the facebook page of the event UKAPS AQUASCAPING EXPERIENCE, so we have a track of the attendants ;)
