 Hi  Madan
 Judges  have  nearly  confirmed  the  grading  criteria,  only  Nazur  has  to  give  final  ok.
 It  will  be  posted  tonight.
 Do  you  want  a  seperate  thread  or  should  I  post  it  here.
 I  want  to  have  a  maximum  48  hrs  of  discussion  on  these  guidelines  and  they  will  be  final  after  that.

 Ok  Friends
 Here  is  the  criteria  by  discussed  by  panel  of  judges.  However  as  Nazur  seems  to  be  busy,  I  am  posting  the  criteria.  Nazur  can  incorporate  his  changes.  As  of  now  this  criteria  has  been  finalised  by  all  5  judges:
 
 Criteria  for  Judging  Photographs
 Point  System
 (1)Each  Judge  will  grade  each  Photograph  on  a  scale  of  1-10.
 (2)Scores  of  all  judges  will  be  totaled  and  a  final  score  of  each  photograph  will  be  tabulated.
 (3)In  case  of  multiple  entries  by  a  contestant,  his  highest  scoring  photo  will  be  considered.
 (4)A  ranking  of  short  listed  photos  will  be  done.
 (5)First  three  photos  will  be  ranked,  First  ,Second  &  third
 (6)In  case  of  a  tie  for  any  place,  joint  winners  will  be  declared.
 
 Grading  Criteria
 Each  judge  will  apply  his  own  judgment.  Judges  while  arriving  at  rankings  can  use  however  following  guidelines.
 1.This  is  contest  for  best  photo  &  not  for  best  fish.  Therefore  characterizes    like  color  of  the  fish/species,  fish  anatomy,  finnage  and  the  fish  health  rarity  will  not  be  a  criteria  for  judgment
 2.Photograph  should  be  pleasing  to  eyes.
 3.Flash  glare  should  not  be  visible.
 4.Basic  good  photo  criteria  like  focus,  colors,  clarity  will  be  important.
 Declaration  of  Result
 1.Judges  will  start  ranking  only  after  the  competition  closes.
 2.Results  will  be  declared  at  8  pm  third  day  after  closure  of  competition.
 Code  on  conduct  for  Judges:
 Judges  should  not  only  be  impartial  but  should  also  seem  to  be  impartial.
 1.Ranking  will  start  only  after  closure  of  competition.
 2.Judges  will  not  try  to  contact  the  participants.
 3.Judges  will  not  comment  on  any  photograph  either  before  or  after  the  competition.
 4.Individual  scores  kept  by  each  judge  will  not  be  made  public.  Only  the  final  scores  will  be  announced.
 An  elimination  round  was  also  proposed  but  will  not  be  applicable  to  this  comptition.  Later  comptetion  can  have  this  round

 The  whole  judging  criteria  seems  just  perfect..
 
 However,  I  have  one  suggestion  ...  at  the  end  of  the  competition  if  we  are  expecting  a  load  of  pics...  it  may  become  tedious  for  the  judges  to  sort  out  the  pictures  and  award  them  their  individual  points..  why  not  rate  the  photograps  as  and  when  they  are  posted  so  the  judges'  time  woudl  be  saved..  these  points  should  ofcourse  not  made  public  ...

 This  has  been  discussed  and  there  is  a  reason  why  we  are  waiting  till  the  end  of  the  competition  to  rate  the  entries.  Once  all  the  entries  are  in  we  can  rate  all  the  photos  on  the  full  scale  of  1  -10.  However  if  we  rate  the  photos  as  they  come  in,  we  can  get  stuck  rating  or  have  to  rerate  everything.  
 
 For  example  we  are  rating  the  best  photos  now  at  9/10  ,  and  some  even  better  ones  come  in  later  -  we  would  have  to  rate  them  10/10  and  get  stuck  with  rating  at  that  time.

 I  agree  with  Pradeep.  It's  better  to  rate  the  pics  at  the  end.

 Photographing  tanks  is  not  the  same  cup  of  tea  as  photographing  fish.
 
 It's  very  very  difficult  when  the  tanks  have  to  be  judged  with  a  full  frontal  view.  An  angular  shot  to  have  the  flash  bounce  off  will  distort  the  entire  picture  and  make  it  unsuitable  and  non  uniform  for  judging.
 
 Let's  face  the  truth,  Judging  from  the  pictures  of  the  tanks  uploaded  to  the  gallery  in  3  years,  the  tank  photo  competition  is  a  non  starter.  Unless  some  members  invest  in  expensive  photo  equipment  and  lights  or  use  the  help  of  a  professional  photographer.  Sorry,  the  truth  always  hurts.!
 
 Asking  people  for  a  say  2  feet  in  length  tank  solely  for  photography  purposes  is  too  much.
 
 If  there  is  interest  in  this  competition  and  people  can  upload  better  pictures  of  the  tank,  where  in  the  "Depth"  of  the  aquascaping  is  seen,  and  every  bit  of  the  tank  upto  the  back  glass  is  crystal  clear  and  in  focus,  then  yes.  Until  then  it  will  have  to  wait.
 
 Unless  you  want  to  have  a  Tank  photo  competition  for  the  sake  of  a  competition.
