The AquaScaping WORLD Competition Winners

On July 30, 2011 AquaScaping World annouced the FINAL Results of the AquaScaping World Competition 2011. The competition was difficult with (81) eight-one participants, whose layouts were classified into four aquarium categories (small, medium, large and biotopes).

An esteemed international panel of judges ranked the aquascapes and selected the TOP 3 from each category to compete against each other in a semi-final public voting round. From there, the combined judges’ score and public voting determined the Final ranking of the TOP 12.

Without further ado, the Grand Winners, People’s Choice and individual category rankings are as follows in the Official ASWC 2011 FINAL WINNERS AND RANKINGS.

Congratulations to the winners and participants. Please contact ASW to claim your prizes.
