Comments from Judges

What an honor to participate in judging this contest. It has been a hard job deciding between all the amazing entries. So many were close in quality. Such talent is exhibited here! Congratulations to all the winners!

There were so many entries (nearly double previous years') that the only sane option was to add two new categories and shuffle around the sizes. One side effect is that the increasingly-popular Nano aquascapes now have their own category!


First of all I want to thank the opportunity to take part as a judge in such important contest, was a great honor to me. I was impressed with the number of inscriptions received this year. Was a lot of (pleasant) work and very difficult to choose in a range of wonderful works. Aquascaping quality level is increasing year after year, and the winners must be very proud of their aquariums in a such challenging competition! Congratulations to all the participants, hope to see you again next year!

Congratulation to all the participants! You do a real great job and it was really difficult to choose a favourite. It was a pleasure to see all your pieces of art!

It just never gets any easier to judge this contest! Thank you all for the privilege of evaluating so many really beautiful aquascapes. Those of you who win should be very proud to do so with so many strong entries. For those of you who don't win, don't feel bad. So many of the tanks in each category are worthy competitors, it is very hard for us judges to choose! Wonderful job, everyone!

All the participants have put their best to create beautiful aquascapes. I have been enjoying every moment of my judging. Congratulation to all the winners. Hope those who didn't do well can learn from the winners and create better aquascapes next year Good luck.
