    New international competition from Taiwan (http://www.iiac.com.tw/index.php).

    Very promising event, it could even be better that IAPLC. Judges, scoring method and prizes are already better than IAPLC. There are 13 Judges, all top scapers around the world unlike IAPLC judges who some of them don't even know how to scape. Submission open 1st February, close 31st July. The interesting part, it is accepting 5 works for each participants unlike IAPLC only 1 work per participants. Another interesting part is the scoring method, the highest and lowest score will be deducted and calculate the mean as final scores. The result will be announced 1st November. Lets see how it goes, looking forward to it.



    Prizes:
    Grand Prize: US$ 10,000 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Gold Prize: US$ 3,000 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Silver Prize: US$ 1,500 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Bronze Prize: US$ 1,000 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Merit Prize: US$ 500 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Honorable Mention (6th - 10th): US$ 300 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Winning Work (11th - 20th): US$ 150 + Metal Plate + Certificate
    Nomination Work (21st - 50th): US$50 + Certificate

    Prizes are about the same as IAPLC. IAPLC have 2 silver prize and 3 bronze prize. Hopefully the fate does not follow Russia competition which last only for 2 or 3 years.

    Just because you are ahead in the game, it does not mean you can be afford to be complacent, take a back seat, kick off your shoes and relax. That is what happened to a few of the bigger brands like Nokia and a little bit closer to heart: Sony. They got arrogant and started to fall back on development that they could not catch up with the rest of the players. Brands today that are in danger of such a situation is Apple and PAP.

    I may be wrong here as Japanese companies are traditionally very conservative: they either grow a little every year or they just grow too big, too fast and self-destruct when they got no more new tricks up their sleeve. ADA is just doing what they can to remain as the leading company in aquatic products. They have to be on their toes since their neighbour are the copy-masters of the world.

    Pai Say. A little off topic. I just cannot resist discussing certain business aspects when it comes to my attention.


    Very tempted to join the competition, but I just realized I only have enough resources and focus to do one tank well only.

    People who buy ADA are not just looking at the quality and innovation of the product, it also buying the brand, layman like me see it as a authentic LV vs replica LV. Both function equally well as bags, all boils down to whether you want a authentic branding or replica at home and how many of the dollar bills you are willing to exchange with.

    I'm hoping they can come out with a SYSTEM that makes everything easier, like how Anubis with their new concept that do away with the rock wood for plants (at price)sold.

    Absolutely correct... Most of the stuff are made in china and then shipped back to Japan for QC and then label it.
