    The official new grading guidelines is out in English

    After reading few times, I still do not have any idea what they want :confused:. 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 (support@iaplc.com) 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.

    総合計点数(100点)
    ※作品ごとの印象点(50点満点)と5項目の技術点(各10点満点・合計100点満点)で採点される。

    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.
