    My entry is disqualified as I am an organiser of the event, although I was not a judge and judging was done 'blind' (the judges were provided numbered photos only without the names of the entrants.)
    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.

    Vinz, since you are not judging, I can't understand why you cannnot participate. I strongly believe all the judges are impartial so there is no need to disqualified your own tank.

    However, if that is the decision from the committee, i will respect that.

    I believe it is just an example of conflict of interest. Although he is not judging, but he is an organizer. You do not want unwanted gossips or complains from other contestants.

    Well said, "conflict of interest". Alot of employee get terminated just like that .. because they ask their relatives to do business with their respective companies. The legal department don't care is it favoritism or pure engineering win or technology win. Once you hit the clause "conflict of interest" ... off you go. pack your bag.

    Hi Bamby

    I totally agree with your view. Just that before I reply to this thread, I did read the registration and submission instructions.

    Registration and Submission Instructions
    Contest judges and their relatives, and members of Biotope Services Pte. Ltd. and their employees and relatives are not allowed to enter the competition.

    Therefore why did I say no issue with his submission is because: -

    1) Organiser in my opinion is AQ since it is AQ-ADA Singapore Aquascaping Contest 2010 not Vinz-ADA Singapore Aquascaping Contest 2010.

    2) It is ok if he is neither a contest judge or their relatives

    3) It is ok if he is neither is he a member of Biotope Service Pte Ltd, their employees and relatives.

    I just feel it is a bit wasted to reject a good work based on some rules and regulations.

    Anyway decision is made since Vinz mention he is the organizer. Cheers!
    Regards
    William

    No worries... I aim for bigger things. I'm disqualified from this contest, but I'm not disqualified from IAPLC.

    Seriously though, tongues might already be wagging. Someone said to me: "Imagine what would happen if your tank had got first placing." So really, I shouldn't have entered my tank in the first place.

    The registration and submission instructions clearly state:

    Contest judges and their relatives, and members of Biotope Services Pte. Ltd. and their employees and relatives are not allowed to enter the competition.
    quoted from this link: http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...ad.php?t=64768

    so you are eligible as long as you are not the judge or member of Biotope

    Yea..what the both of you are saying is true that it is not stated organizers cannot enter their work of art. I would say the rules were not clear enough? Maybe these can be a lesson learn for them to set rules more clearly so that such minor issues will not happen again.
    I am also sad that a fine piece of art had to be disqualified in such a manner.
