Entries for Round One of the UK Aquascaping Championship 2016 are now open. So if you have a talent for producing great aquarium layouts, why not give it a shot?
To enter Round One, you need to send a photograph of your aquascape via the UKASC website by Sunday, August 14. The top ten entries will go forward to Round Two — the live scape off — to decide the UK Aquascaping Champion 2016 on Saturday, October 15 at J and K Aquatics, North Petherton, Somerset. The ten ’scapers who compete in Round Two will get to keep their creations, including the Clear-Seal Edgeline aquarium.
The top three placed ’scapers will be decided by spectators voting in ballot boxes throughout the ’scape off.
The overall UK Aquascaping Champion 2016 will win a bespoke Clear-Seal tank to the value of £850, along with £250 cash. Second prize is a Ciano Emotions 120 aquarium and £200 cash; third prize is a Ciano Emotions 80 aquarium and £150 cash. The top three ’scapers will also receive a selection of other sponsorship goodies.
Sponsors of the contest, which is run by J and K Aquatics, are Arcadia, Aquadeco, Ciano, Clear-Seal, Dennerle, Eheim, Tetra and Reeflowers. Once again, the competition is being run with the support of UK aquascaper, Alastair Treymaine.
