Cut and Paste from the web site:
The Aquatic Gardeners Association is proud to announce our 12th International Aquascaping Contest!! This event is an opportunity for all aquascapers, from the beginner hobbyist to the professional, to display and share their art with others around the world.
New this year: In an effort to stimulate worldwide economic recovery, there will be NO ENTRY FEE for 2011!
All that is required are 1 - 5 photos of your aquarium, a simple entry form, and a signed photo release. You can enter entirely online. We will display all entries permanently on the AGA's web site. You can also choose to have your tank entered in the 2012 Aqua Design Amano contest at the same time.
Winners will receive ribbons and cash awards.
Closing date for entries: September 25
Winners announced: November 18
This contest just keeps growing and growing and growing! So fluff the plants, snap those photos, and enter your aquascape in the AGA contest to share with aquatic gardeners and artists around the world!
We'd like to thank Jen Williams for the beautiful graphics and the advertisement for The Aquatic Gardener.
We are recruiting volunteers to help with online promotion of the contest. If you regularly visit forums or aquarium-related Facebook pages, and can spend an hour posting online, please contact cheryl @ dustyuniverse.com. Also, if you have a blog or web site, please download a web banner and link. This contest cannot be a success without folks who contribute a little of their time and effort.
Also, if you or your company is interested in sponsoring the AGA aquascaping contest, we would be grateful for donations to offset the cost of the cash awards, which are numerous. Sponsors have their company logo and web site link printed in The Aquatic Gardener and featured prominently on the AGA showcase web site.
Please e-mail us if you need more information. Contest Technical Coordinator Erik Olson (erik @ thekrib.com) is happy to answer any questions about the web site or electronic entry process. For general questions, please contact Cheryl @ dustyuniverse.com.
Good Luck and Happy 'Scaping!
