2011 AGA International Aquascaping Contest


The 2011 AGA International Aquascaping Contest is open for entries!

All that is required are 1 - 5 photos of your aquarium, a simple entry form, and a signed photo release. You can enter entirely online. We will display all entries permanently on the AGA's web site. You can also choose to have your tank entered in the 2012 Aqua Design Amano contest at the same time.

Winners will receive ribbons and cash awards
Closing date for entries: September 25
Winners announced: November 18

This contest just keeps growing and growing and growing! So fluff the plants, snap those photos, and enter your aquascape in the AGA contest to share with aquatic gardeners and artists around the world!



In an effort to aid worldwide economic recovery, there will be NO ENTRY FEE this year! :-)

The 12th annual AGA International Aquascaping Contest is off to a great start!

We already have a number of early entries for the 2011 contest and hope to have a record turnout! The contest closes for entries September 25 and winners will be announced November 18 on the AGA website.

Each of the six categories has a first, second, and third place cash award and ribbon, so there are lots of opportunities to win! There is a separate award for Best in Show, sponsored this year by Aquabid. Remember, the AGA is not charging an entry fee this year. We are seeking donations to cover (& hopefully increase!) the cash awards.

See this page for details on how it works and info about sponsorship.

Only two more weeks to go before the AGA Aquascaping Contest closes September 25!

In Larry Lampert's memory, ZooMed is sponsoring a "Most Innovative" award.

No entry fee this year, but we are seeking donations to cover (& hopefully increase!) the cash awards. See this page for details and info about sponsorship.

One more Day! The contest closes for entries tomorrow. Time to finalize your entries, and don't forget the photo release. You HAVE to do that part.

Got the dates mixed up and didn't get my pics submitted. For some reason was thinking the 28th when, in fact, it was the 25th Oh well, working on something bigger and better for next year

I'm sure you will do good, that tank and your pics were really awesome. Make sure you announce on your journal where you end up, I will be waiting to find out.

The site will be very slow today. Alternate: BitTorrent-distributed ZIP file of the 2011 site, for faster browsing: http://www.aquatic-gardeners.org/aga2011.zip.torrent
