    AQ Mass submission for ADA 2006 contest

    Hope you guys have been getting your tanks ready for the competition...

    Like the last 2 years, AQ will help local members (i.e. Singaporeans/ PRs) do a group submission for ADA Contest 2006. Only difference is this year we will waive the charges for the printing/mailing to encourage more participation.

    Here are the details:

    ADA requirements (for digital images):
    - Take photo only from front side of tank. Do not take at an angle. Do not crop out the edges. This is important.
    - Do not make image processing such as trimming or retouch.
    - Image is to be taken with 3.0 megapixels (or better) in high resolution mode. Format in TIFF or JPG.

    What will AQ help to do?
    - Send the images to a good photo lab to print them in the required 5R size.
    - Collate the pictures/ entry form/ images into a CD and mail by registered post to ADA.

    How to submit?
    - One entry per person.
    - Take the photo and do your own colour correction. Save in TIFF or JPG.
    - Fill in this entry form.
    - Email the entry form and photo to me ([email protected]) by 20-Apr-2006 (Thursday).
    - The mailbox can take maximum 10mb per email. Please do not exceed that.
    - I should respond within a day when I receive it. If you don't hear from me, please contact me at 92201986.

    Some pointers from ADA:
    - Use of house plants or marginal plants, which hardly survives in water, will have points deducted.
    - Picture taken at an angle or only part of the aquarium will have points deducted.

    Important dates:
    20-Apr-2006: Deadline to email pictures to AQ for submission. We need some time to print and mail the photos to ensure they reach ADA on time.
    30-Apr-2005: Contest closes.

    Reference pages/sites:
    ADA: http://www.adana.co.jp/contest06.html
    Top 30 Tanks in ADA 2005: http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...ad.php?t=18446

    Any queries? Can post here or PM me or Fei Miao (Kenneth).

    Good luck!

    Some of you may be wondering why Aquatic Quotient and Bioscape are offering the same service and which you should engage.

    In Aquatic Quotient, this service is an initiative started by Juggler, one of our moderators, two years ago and now has become an AQ "tradition" which we will continue. Together with Bioscape, we hope there will be more Singaporean entries this year.

    AQ members are free to choose which service they prefer to engage. Bioscape's submission details are posted in it's respective thread and is listed next to ours in the Event forum.

    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    About 20 more days to go before we close the submission ...

    Do send us your entries. It doesn't matter if it is an older aquascape you had before as long as you had a good picture of it.

    Thanks. Good luck!

    Just a question... what if i am not singaporean, not currently PR though I have a letter that qualify me for PR once I get a job (Currently student).

    I quote from above :
    " Like the last 2 years, AQ will help local members (i.e. Singaporeans/ PRs) do a group submission for ADA Contest 2006. Only difference is this year we will waive the charges for the printing/mailing to encourage more participation"

    So, please advise if I still qualify to submit with you.

    Thanks

    3 more days to go before we consolidate for mass submission.
    Remember to send to me by 20-Apr! We will send it for printing on 21-Apr.

    Don't be shy. I see so many great looking tanks in the Aquascaping gallery. Go and take a picture of your tank and fill in the entry form now.

    There's nothing to lose. You even get to receive a copy of the 2006 ADA Contest catalog if you take part.

    Hear from you soon... cheers!

    Don't be disheartened please!

    I promise: one tank from me next year.

    My current one needs at least one more week.. =/ and I don't meet the minimum resolution requirement.

    My first entry this year. Can't wait to get the catalogue.
    I will have lots of tanks to scape soon, after I get my fish room project moving.
    One tank from me each year! I will probably shoot all my tanks and sort out which year I want to send which one!

    Few hundred members but only 9 .... a bit disappointing. ....

    If can submit video clip than maybe more will join, cause most handphone now can record good video too, but photography not everyone have camera neither good photo taking skills i guess.

    hopefully tomorrow have more submission coming...
