Get your Aquarium Beautiful entries in! (Please!)

Postby Chriscoli » Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:54 am

Hey GWAPA! For those that haven't seen the recent posts on Facebook, we're going to be offering CASH PRIZES for the aquarium beautiful competition. So far we have only NINE tanks registered! C'mon folks! :D

So, let us know that you're planning on coming by registering HERE.

the way it's going to work this year is that tanks will be judged by a panel of peers (one from CCA, PVAS, and GWAPA). They will choose the first place winners in each of the categories. Each tank can only be entered into one of the following categories:
– Aquascaped tanks over 10 gallons
– Aquascaped tanks 10 gallons and under
– Tanks showcasing fish on the C.A.R.E.S. list
– Tanks featuring a biotope of your choice
– “Themed” tanks where you can let your creativity run wild

Then from those first place winners, they'll pick the Best in Show.

Meanwhile, all attendees will be able to vote on their personal favorite, and that tank will win the People's Choice award.

Just remember that you need to be a registered BFD attendee to bring a tank. Tanks can only be entered into one category, but you can bring as many tanks as you want. If you are bringing a tank over 10 gallons, please also bring a stand for it.

I'll add if anyone wants help, tips, advice, plants, stuff, encouragement please say something! I know there's lots of folks here (in addition to myself) who would love to help get more GWAPA people to enter!

Also, moving a tank isn't impossible. I've got a bunch of tricks I'm happy to pass along from my many many many many times doing it. :)

Right now, there is about a 50% chance that *I* will take home the grand prize.

Do you guys really want the guy who thinks "more plants makes better!" and "blah, I'm gonna just make it a reef tank" to beat you??

So, we're up for 14 entries now....

two of our categories don't even have enough to make a 2nd and 3rd place winner! And since we're giving cash and I think a gift certificate as well, there are some prizes that are going to be left on the table. Don't let that happen! :D
