The Aquatic Gardeners Association is excited to announce the results for the 2022 AGA International Aquascaping Contest. The contest had another outstanding year, with an excellent number of entries submitted to both our aquatic garden and specialty categories. There were some stunning aquascapes this year making the judging very difficult again.
The success of the contest is dependent on the hard work of our esteemed panel of judges sifting through hundreds of entries to choose just a few of the very best aquascapes. Judging the contest is a daunting task requiring all of our judges to take time from their work and home obligations. Without their willingness to participate, our aquascaping contest would not be the success it is today. The contest committee is incredibly thankful to all of our judges!
The contest would not be the success it is without the generosity of our sponsors: Seachem, Florida Aquatic Nurseries, Amazonas Magazine, the Greater Seattle Aquarium Society and the Chicago Aquatic Plant Society. Thank you for your generous support!
On the AGA side, I would like to thank the Contest Planning Committee, in particular Jen Williams for providing our beautiful contest graphics and Cheryl Rogers for contacting and securing the unprecedented 17-member judging panel. I also want to send out a huge thank you to Erik Olson, the AGA’s tech guru, who not only handled the aquascapes as they were received, but also the preparation of the final website and livestream. Thank you volunteers, judges and sponsors for your hard work!
So, without further ado, enjoy this year's aquascapes!
