    Default4th Annual Discus Grow Out Contest Photo Submissions Due May 8th, 2016

    The below information has been sent by PM to each of the contestants that is still in the contest. The photos are due by May 8th, 2016. Winners will be announced shortly after that. If any one has any questions please feel free to contact me.

    Photo requirements:

    The first should be a profile shot of the discus, please try to make sure the discus is not angled towards or away from the camera. The judges will best be able to grade the shape and proportions of the fish if the photo is taken directly from the side.

    For the second photo the discus should be removed from the aquarium and a photo is to be taken with a measuring tape or ruler held above the discus.

    Please remember that you only need to submit photos of the one discus from your group that you feel is the best. The discus will be graded on the following criteria:

    Conformation:
    Body Shape (roundness, smooth contours, lack of blemishes) /10
    Fins (shape, balance, rays well formed, lack of blemishes) /10
    Eyes (shape, proportion to body, colour) /10
    Gill/Head Structure (well formed with smooth contours) /10
    Colour (intensity, pattern) /10
    Health (erect fins, bright colours, clear eyes, etc) /10
    Overall Impression /10

    Size:
    Over 3" +5.0 points
    Over 3.5" +7.5 points
    Over 4" +10.0 points
    Over 4.5" +12.5 points
    Over 5" +15.0 points
    Over 5.5" +17.5 points
    Over 6" +20.0 points

    You can submit the photos to me by e-mail at [email protected] or by PM here on BCA.

    I have included two sample photos below to illustrate what the photos should look like.

    Thank-you to every one from the 4th CAF Discus Grow Out Contest who have submitted photos for judging. The winners will be announced shortly. The top three finishers will each receive a plaque with an aluminum print featuring the parents of the contest fish caring for the actual batch of fry that were used in the contest. Additionally every one that submitted updates in each of the months that the contest ran will receive a $50 CAF gift certificate. Stay tuned!

    Thanks, glad to hear you like them. I spent a long time trying to source something that the winners can proudly display.

    I am apart of some clubs here and we do some different Dog of the Year trophies. The trophies have to be given back at the end of the year so the next winner can have them. I suggested this same idea your doing. A plaque so the person can always have it displayed in their home.

    The lay out is pretty much the same. I like the idea of being able to display then in the winners fish room.
