Who will be the UK Aquascaping Champion of 2016? You can find out first hand — and even have your say in the voting — on Saturday, October 15.
Entries for Round One of the UK Aquascaping Championship 2016 closed on August 14. To enter, entrants submitted a photograph of their aquascape via the UKASC website. The top ten entries from Round One have gone forward to Round Two — the live scape off — to decide the UK Aquascaping Champion 2016.
The live scape off takes place from 10am–5pm at J & K Aquatics’ distribution centre in North Petherton, Somerset. The ten ’scapers who compete in Round Two will get to keep their creations including the Clear-Seal Edgeline aquarium. Throughout the day there will also be a programme of seminars and workshops by expert aquascapers for you to attend.
The top three placed scapers will be decided by spectators voting in ballot boxes throughout the scape off, and also a judging panel. The third placed ’scaper will win a Ciano Emotions Nature 80 aquarium and £150 cash, the second placed ’scaper will win a Ciano Emotions 120 Nature aquarium and £200 cash and the UK Aquascaping Champion 2016 will win a bespoke Clear-Seal tank to the value of £850, plus £250 cash. All three will also receive a host of other sponsor goodies.
