Nola Bear posted a topic in General Discussion@Christopher Marks, @Cultivated Reef and I are excited to announce the next official Nano-Reef Community contest... An official Acro Grow-Out contest sponsored by Cultivated Reef, who has agreed to start 20 frags of Upscales Microclados Acropora for contestants interested in buying in! Acro Frag Grow-Out Contest Details Upscales Microclados Frag: $35 (Normally Retails on Cultivated Reef for $70) Shipping: $30 Winner’s Pot: $10 Total Cost: $75 The contest will run for 6 months and only requires a photo of the frag next to a ruler, posted once per month in our contest thread. Christopher Marks, Cultivated Reef and I have agreed to judge. $10 from each contestant will go towards a Winners Pot Gift Card to Cultivated Reef to buy even more coral! Contest Timeline: How To Enter Official Start Date: March 1, 2018 The contest is open to the first 20 Nano-Reef.com community members who complete the following: Purchase your frag through Cultivated Reef "N-R Acro Grow Out" product. It's only accessible by following this link: http://cultivatedreef.com/product/nano-reefs-acro-grow-out-contest-coral/. This way only people interested in the contest will have access to it. Your frag must be delivered any time within the month of March - Allow 1 week after ordering before shipment! Once delivered, you must post a photo of the frag within 3 days of delivery next to a ruler to show the exact size and color of the frag as your official entry into the contest here in this thread. That's it! Contestants are then required to post one "ruler-pic" of the frag each month to the contest thread that clearly shows the size and color of the contest frag to remain eligible. Try to frame your ruler shot similarly each month! At the end of the six month competition, your posted images will be used by the judges to determine a winner. The contest will officially end September 30th. The variability of start and end dates is determined by the delivery of your coral. For instance, if you purchase and post your initial photo on March 20, then your end date is September 20. This means it will be a 6-month contest from start to finish. We wanted to give everyone time to get their corals happy in their tank give ample time to grow before choosing the winners. How To Order Your Frag Follow this link to place your order: http://cultivatedreef.com/product/nano-reefs-acro-grow-out-contest-coral/. When purchasing the frag be sure to select "Store Pickup" as the shipping option. The Acro Grow Out frag purchase price includes your shipping so by selecting "Store Pickup" you will avoid a second shipping charge. Also if you want to add other coral to your order you certainly can do so Frags will be created as ordered and held for 1 week of healing time before shipment. Do not wait too long to order your contest frag, order by March 19th at the very latest! Contest Prize There will be one winner chosen at the end of the contest by a panel vote of three judges (Holly of Cultivated Reef, our very own Nano-Reef Community founder Christopher Marks, and me, Nola Bear). The contestants' frags will be evaluated by considering the following characteristics: Overall Growth (Height, Branching and Encrusting) & Coloration. Prize: Winners Pot Gift Card to Cultivated Reef (Dollar amount dependent on the number of contestants) Thank you to our wonderful sponsor CULTIVATED REEF for their generous support of this contest! Monthly Shots Each contestant is required to post a photo of his/her frag next to a ruler once per month for the duration of the contest in this thread in order to remain eligible. You must submit one "ruler-pic" per month, within a +/- 7 day window of your personal deadline. So, if you post your initial entry photo on March 20, then your next month's photo will need to be posted between April 13-27, and the following May 13-27, June 13-27, etc., etc. in order to not be disqualified. This built-in leeway should help with those people who may have travel or other extenuating circumstances throughout the competition.
