Great news George! Does this mean youve had some inside info? We should be getting results soon shouldnt we?

I thought entries close on May 31?

I'm always convinced the better quality pictures sway the judges slightly. :?

Possibly true, but the 2005 winner (I think, without having the book to check) was an awful photo.

True. And there was a few dodgy photos in the Top 20 last year too.

I think the judges try to mark the aquascapes on their merits without being influenced by photo technique.

thats brilliant to see such an increase. Ive been hoping that UK entries would increase now that the Society has such a wonderful member base.. we have such huge talent on here.

If you have entered, and youre on here, we'd love to know if youre one of the 12+... one of our aims is obviously to increase awareness of the hobby in the UK, so if our members are entering then that would be truely fantastic.
