Re: AGA Contest Question
I can support the illustration category, James, but I do have some
reservations to the pond category:
1. A pond is an integral part of a (garden) landscape, a component of an
overall "terrestrial" design. And there are plenty of garden clubs and
garden related contests that we don't need another one. To put it simply,
we are in the aquarium hobby, not in the gardening hobby.
2. AGA's focus has been (unless I got this completely wrong) on underwater
plants, underwater "landscapes", underwater concepts. I believe that focus
3. Many, if not most, pond plants have no underwater component. Therefore,
they may not have any relevance for the majority of AGA members that may
not be familiar with them.
As an alternative, can I suggest another category: Underwater pictures of
plants and fish. The pictures would be evaluated on the artistic merit of
the picture and the health and beauty of the plants and animals. An
aquarium layout would not be required, a planting plan would be irrelevant.
(Example: there's a beautiful picture of a cory on some riccia on the CD).
