    Thanks a lot! :)
    It's a pity that not everyone who took the 1st place can come to the finals. For example Victor Cruz and Abrar Khan will not be able to come, so we invite the next ones. But I think the finals will be great :)

    greenfinger 2, I do not think it is a shame, everything can happen. It turned out that Victor Cruz for example is extremely busy in November. And yes, it takes a lot of money.
    Oh, now I know that you are the fifth in wabi-kusa category in GAPLC, Roy. Great result! Congratulations! (y)
    Welcome to our contests next year! ;)

    Sorry, Roy, my chief has just told me that we are not going to make a wabi-kusa category yet.
    But everything can change of course. I will keep you informed ;)

    Hi Roy,
    the event was really interesting :) This year we had a finalist from Mexico, and it was very unusual experience :D The guy is a real enthusiast, he told us many exciting things about their native species and ecological problems in his region. He had many photos of biotopes. If you are interested, here is a video from his YouTube channel.
