 1.     Number  of  Competitions:
            (a)  A  minimum  of  4  competitions  in  a  year,  at  least  one  every  quarter.
 
            (b)  Each  competition  will  be  open  for  one  month.
 
            (c)  Results  will  be  declared  within  15  days  of  close  of  Competition.
            Competition  No. Period  of  competition Date  of  declaration  of  result
            1                                May  2009                                     15-06-2009
            2                                July  2009                                     15-08-2009
            3                                Nov  2009                                     15-12-2009
            4                     Feb  2010                                                                   15-03-2010
 
 2.     Topic  of  Competition:  Can  be  decided  after  an  open  poll  on  the  forum,  
 
 3.      Judges  &  Coordinator:  Each  competition  will  be  judged  by  three  judges  and  their   results  will  be  complied  by  the  coordinator.  
          The  coordinator  can  be  one  of  the  moderators  of  the  photography  forum,  but  the  
          judges  will  be  selected  from  a  pool  of  members  who  are  not  moderators  or  
          admins,  only  if  we  are  unable  to  get  the  required  number  of  judges
          will   moderators  or  admins  be  requested  to  take  up  the  job.
 
 4.      Judging  criteria:  The  criteria  for  ranking  set  up  by  Vanita  (Clowny  girl)  was  very  exhaustive  and  has  served  well.  
          We  are  retaining  the  same.  For  details  please  check
          http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=3776.
 
 5.         Prize:  
             This  year  we  are  trying  to  do  something  different  for  prizes.
             We  will  have  1st,  2nd,  and  3rd  prizes  for  each  competition.
             The  winner  of  the  first  prize  will  have  his/her  photo  placed  on  the  IAH
             homepage   with  credits;  the  winners  of  the  2nd  and  3rd  prizes  will
             have  their  photos  placed  in  the  photography  forum  with  credits.
             A  Grand  Winner  at  the  end  of  year  will  be  presented  with  a  prize  at
             Aquatika  2010.
            The  Grand  Winner  will  be  chosen  on  the  basis  of  the  following  points
             system:
             In  each  contest,
             1st  prize  will  get  35  points.
             2nd  prize  will  get  30  points.
             3rd  place  will  get  25  points.
             The  points  of  each  participant  will  be  added  up  and  the  person  with
             the  maximum  number  of  points  at  the  end  of  the  year  will  be
             declared  the  Grand  Winner.
   
               As  IAH  is  all  about  participation,  each  participant  will  get  5
               participation  points  for  each  competition.  However,  a  participant  will
               only  receive  participation  points  once  per  contest.  
               Multiple  entries  will  not  earn  you  more  than  5  points.
               Prize  winners  will  not  get  participation  points.
 
 6.           Posting  of  Photographs:
                (a)  Please  ensure  that  your  photographs  conform  to  size  800  by  xxx.
 
                (b)  Relevant  details  should  be  given  along  with  photograph,  like  tank
                size,  inhabitants,  ower  of  tank,  camera  model  etc.
 
                (c)  Please  ensure  that  you  are  submitting  the  photograph  which  is
                owned  by  yourself,  of   your  tank  photographed  by  you.  In  case  the  tank  or  picture  belongs  to  somebody  else,  it
                should  be  ensured  that  you  have  his  permission  to  use  the  photograph.

 Excellent  Idea
   Thumb Up  
 
 The  coordinator  and  the  judges  cannot  compete?  In  that  case  reducing  the  number  of  judges  to  two  may  be  worthwhile  so  that  we  can  have  more  people  competing.
 
 Is  the  panel  of  Judges  fixed  for  the  whole  year  or  will  it  change  for  each  competition?

 Coordinator  can  compete,  judges  cannot.
 Keeping  same  judges  for  the  whole  year  would  deprive  them  of  chance  of  participation.
 The  panel  will  be  for  two  competitions.

 Gr8  Going  Sandeep....  
 
 Regarding  judges,I  think   there  should  be  atleast  on  judge  who  will  not  Look  at  the  PIC  in  any  technical  manner...  i.e.  pic  quality,Fish  Quality,Water  Quality,Aquarium  Quality  etc.  
 
 That  perticual  person  should  judge  the  pic  just  by  what  his  senses  tell  him  at  his  first  look.  Many  times  we  like  perticular  structure  though  its  not  technically  correct  or  is  out  of  proportion..
 
 once  agian..gr8  initiative   Clapping

 I  am  afraid  I  will  have  to  differ  here.
 The  attributes  that  you  mentioned  above  are  the  ones  that  makes  a  picture  a  good  picture.
 I  may  agree  with  you  on  fish  quality  to  not  be  included  as  one  of  the  judging  parameters,but  Water  qualty  (Clean  and  Crystal  water),  Aquarium  quality  (  I  consider  clean  glass  as  one  of  the  contributing  attributes  )  are  somethings  that  make  a  picture  stand  out  amongst  others.
 We  may  not  be  able  to  ignore  those.

 Great  going,  Sandeep.  Good  news  for  all  of  us!  I  look  forward  to  the  competition.
 
 @Niranjan:  As  Sandeep  said,  I  think  Clowny  Girl's  post  regarding  grading  rules  covers  pretty  much  everything.  
 I  think  'Impact'  comes  close  to  describing  what  you  are  talking  about.  However,  the  technical  criteria  do  still  matter.  What  you  are  talking  about  is  still  a  highly  subjective  detail  to  factor  into  the  ranking  system,  and  therefore  of  questionable  usefulness.

 @  Rohan  and  Ashwin..
 
       It  was  just  my  opinion..  I  understand  the  importance  of  Clean  Glass  and  Water..  Thats  why  I  said  other  2  judges  will  definately  look  towards  that  issue..  But  One  Judge  Can  judge  JUST  by  INSTINCT....  Many  Times  It  Happens  That  a  Certain  Pic  is  full  with  all  the  qualities  to  get  1st  Prize  but  Personally  We  Dont  like  that.  
    So  my  point  was  1  judge  Can  judge  the  Pic  through  Common  Man's  Eye...
