 Rules:
 
 1.  You  are  allowed  to  enter  as  many  pictures  as  you  wish.  Only  the  highest  ranking  photograph  will  be  considered  for  the  prize  from  all  of  one  member's  entries.  Each  member  cannot  win  more  than  one  prize!
 
 2.  All  photographs  must  be  your  property,  do  not  bring  in  copyright  issues  here.  Smile  
 
 3.  Size  of  the  fish  does  not  matter.  It's  the  photograph  that  is  being  judged  here  not  the  fish.  Smile  
 
 4.  Please  resize  your  image  to  600  x  XXX  pixels  before  uploading  to  the  gallery.  Then  display  the  image  in  "Entries"  thread.
 
 5.  Pictures  will  be  graded  by  a  select  panel  of  IAH  members  who  are  not  participating  in  the  particular  competition.  This  panel  will  be  announced  at  a  later  date.
 
 6.  If  possible  include  Make  of  Camera,  lighting,  shutter  speed,  aperture  settings,  type  of  lens  used  and  as  much  detail  as  you  possibly  can  regarding  the  equipment  and  ambient  conditions.
 
 7.  The  photograph  competition  has  nothing  to  do  with  the  rarity,  size  of  the  fish  or  sophisticated  equipment  used.  It  will  be  judged  purely  on  Clarity,  Sharpness  and  in  the  Judges  opinion  "Pleasing  to  the  Eye".  (  Judges  please  note:  This  is  not  a  fish  competition).
 
 8.  Entries  to  this  competition  must  be  submitted  latest  by  Mid  Night  IST  31st  May  2006.    
 
 9.  The  decision  of  the  judges  is  final.  No  disagreement  will  be  tolerated.  Very Happy

 I  do  not  know  if  I  am  in  forbidden  territory  or  not..  but  here  I  want  to  give  some  tips  for  people  who  will  take  part  in  this  competition.
 
 I  know  that  many  of  you  are  primarily  aquarist  and  use  you  camera  only  once  in  a  while.  Still  if  you  can,  try  to  convert  your  image  in  sRGB  profile(if  your  camera  gives  that  by  default  its  great)  and  attach  the  ICC  profile  with  your  jpeg  file.  The  judges  monitor  is  different  from  you  home  comp,  and  so  he  may  get  a  different  color  all  together  unless  the  profile  is  sRGB.  For  web  viewing  sRGB  is  a  de-facto  standard.  Many  of  the  image  editor  do  offer  nowadays  ICC  profile  attachment  capability.  Use  one  of  them.
 
 -Regards

 I  suppose  the  photo  competition  is  not  only  for  single  fish  photos......
 
 Does  the  competition  include  photos  of  tanks(all  types)  and  groups  of  fishes..(both  species  n  community  tank)?

 Let's  not  confuse  the  issue  here.
 
 The  Competition  is  for  photographing  Discus  fish.  one  or  more  in  a  frame  is  Ok,  if  it's  acceptable  to  the  judges.
 It  is  not  about  tank  setups,  decorations  and  community  fish.
 
 We'll  get  to  those  later,  let's  get  the  first  contest  under  the  belt  and  take  it  up  from  there.

 It  is  a  Photo  competition,  the  Subject  of  the  Photo  is  Discus.
 
 The  Photographer  wins  the  prize,  not  the  Owner  of  teh  Fish.

 I  had  a  head  start    Very Happy  ,  wait  till  some  of  the  others  get  home,  dig  through  their  comps,  get  their  cameras  out  and  go  after  discus.  Very Happy  
 
 That's  why  May  31st  2006,  was  announced  as  the  last  date.
   
 There's  a  lot  of  time  folks,  so  enter  your  best  pics  in  the  contest.

 May  31st  May  be  too  long..  and  we  just  may  have  more  entries  than  can  be  effectively  evaluated.  Moreover...  why  dont  we  restrict  the  number  of  pictures  posted  per  person???

 Let's  see  the  response  and  take  it  from  there.  I  have  implicit  faith  in  the  Judges.  Very Happy  
 
 I  am  unaware  of  many  members  who  take  pictures  of  fish  for  their  private  collecion,  Beta,  Ravi  and  Sriram,  I  know  of.  It  would  be  unfair  for  someone  who  is  encoraged  by  this  contest  to  start  a  private  collection  if  we  don't  give  him  enough  time.

 Thanks  for  the  Trust  Madan
 We  will  do  our  utmost  to  give  best  of  results.
 We  should  not  restrict  any  number  of  entries.  I  think  the  load  can  be  handled.
 I  have  devised  a  simple  ranking  criteria,  do  you  want  me  to  put  it  up  here  or  is  it  to  me  pmed.
