Preliminary report on the IAPLC2011 application number!
The application of the International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest 2011 has been closed on May 31st as every year, and the IAPLC2011 steering committee has received a total of 1,603 submissions from 55 countries and areas. This year, we were concerned that the number of application from Japan might decrease due to the unprecedented natural disaster, the pacific coast of Tohoku earthquake we experienced in Japan. However, we are pleased to announce you that the application in Japan has actually hit the highest record in the IAPLC history with 526 works. And when looking at the number of participating countries, which is 55 countries and areas, it can be said that the IAPLC has truly become an international event. The passion of the planted aquarium hobbyists in the world have gathered at the ADA head office. Now, the submissions have been going through the strict judgment of juries. The result will be announced as the "IAPLC 2011 World Ranking" in August, so please look forward to the announcement.
Thank you again for your entry.
The Nature Aquarium Party, in which the awarding ceremony of the IAPLC 2011 will take place, will be held on September 17th at Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo, Japan. We welcome your participation!
