Contest Grading guidelines
The judging criteria are split into four categories and sum up to a total of 100 points. For that reason the highest score an aquascape can achieve is 100 points. The judgement will be based on many different aspects such as long term stability of the layout, proper use of plants and plant health.
For example if a participant is using emerged plants and house plants which can barely survive under submerged conditions this will result in point deduction.
Creativity of the aquascape (Maximum 35 points)
Does this layout contain new and/or inventive aspects?
What is the artistic impression of the aquascape?
Layout design (Maximum 30 points)
Proper placement of the plants.
Is there a balance within the layout in terms of the colors and shapes of aquatic plants?
Is the hardscape adequately chosen and does it fit into the layout composition?
Aspects of long term stability of the layout.
Condition of the aquatic plants (Maximum 30 points)
Overall health of the aquatic plants.
Use of emerged plants and house plants, which can barely survive under submerged conditions, will lead to point deduction.
Photographic aspects of the submitted image (Maximum 5 points)
Special efforts to highlight the beauty of the aquascape with photographic knowledge and skill.
