    wow... this is big one

    According to the ADA IALC entry criteria, "Only unreleased / unpublished work produced by and individual applicant is accepted". In other word photo entry to this competition can't be submited to IAPLC 2009. Just need clarification.

    Hi Robert,
    do not worry on this point.
    We have seen examples of published works, for example on APF, which still got top marks for their tanks.

    Hope to receive your submissions.

    There is no limitation of size.
    IAPLC had a 10cmx10cmx10cm submission which garnered a ranking of 100th. So just submit them!

    Looking forward to your submission.

    unreleased work simply mean that the tank has not been entered for any major competition

    Just a suggestion, assuming that this competition will be yearly event. Maybe the closing date should be much earlier maybe 2 or 3 months before IAPLC closing date. The idea is so that participant can improve their scape based on judge opinion and have enough time to submitted to IAPLC.

    Just my 2 cents
