The official new grading guidelines is out in English
After reading few times, I still do not have any idea what they want . I personally have no problem with new rule, I just confuse with the direction its going.
Does it mean iwagumi out under the new rule? How about those jungle with tree scape? I will try to email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) asking the question but I doubt they will reply. If any of you have similar question, please email them, let them know that we are all confuse. I'm hopping with numbers of emails, they do something to clarify.
The New IAPLC Judging Criteria effective from IAPLC2014
The IAPLC Steering Committee reviewed the judging criteria and revised them effective from IAPLC2014, which is considered to be a good timing since the contest received a record number of entries. We did so also for the reason of returning to the basics to rethink how planted aquarium should be.
For the parameters in the judging criteria, a focus is placed on “recreation of fish habitat” which is deeply associated with the origin of planted aquarium.
These new judging criteria do not limit the scope of layout expression of contestants. Their objective is to clearly define an essential feature of planted aquarium; recreating within a tank an environment conducive to fish survival.
① Recreation of natural habitat for fish (Maximum 50 points)
・Evaluation of layout work as healthy fish habitat
・Expression of underwater environment in layout work
・General condition of fish and aquatic plants in layout work
・Evaluation of layout work if corresponding type, size, physiology and ecology of fish
② Long-term maintenance of layout work (Maximum 10 points)
・Chance of maintaining the aquascape for a long period of time
・Screening of whether or not the expression shown in the layout photo is a temporary one which was produced only for photographing.
③ Creator’s technical skills (Maximum 10 points)
・Evaluation of comprehensive techniques in creating and maintaining layout work
④ Originality and impression of layout work (Maximum 10 points)
・Evaluation of creator’s originality and creativity
・Perfection and attractiveness of layout work
⑤ Presentation of natural atmospherein layout work (Maximum 10 points)
・Expression of layout work concerning natural ecosystem
・Presentation of a sense of time’s passage
・Evaluation of creator’s interpretation of nature
⑥ Overall composition and planting balance (Maximum 10 points)
・Completeness of layout composition
・Evaluation of the balance of planting
Result is officially out http://en.iaplc.com/results14/results14.html
Robert congrats to your ranking.....and to all participants.
why is it only 2000 names in the result whereas they reported
a total of 2320 participants for this year IAPLC 2014??
There were many disqualifications before grading and after.
Do you know the main reasons ?
Maybe because otherwise the 2014 booklet become too thick
i am referring to the lists on ADA's result link.
still looking for 1 name out of 18 participants from Philippines
They probably didn't follow rules of submittal (submitting more than one picture, side shots, angles, etc.) or submitted images to more than one competition or published them elsewhere before the official announcement, or simply because the tanks were unsuited for aquatic life.
Thank you very much Rules are Rules and for such a high standard competition they must be obeyed.
here is one good sample why the list of names is not complete. just sharing.
I wanna see my name i that list!
If i understand well, that rule means i cannot share anything in this (or any) forum, of any submitted jobs or to be submitted, until the results have been published. Otherwise i may be disqualified. Right?
Hi Ra, Reading it yes that's what it says. You cannot share the photo you entered Until after 26 October 2014 Good luck with your Aquascape
