The Challenge was brought to an end on the 23rd January and the results were assessed by the judges online We only invited those with sufficient chance of winning to enter the final stage to limit the work required So Pottsy, Lyles and Salty were invited to submit 3 fish for judging, of at least 2 of the varieties they were given at the start of the competition and together with their online updates an assessment was made. Criteria for the judges covered 2 areas: firstly the quantity and quality of the updates secondly the fish individually and as a group of 3. the quality of the pictures was specifically discounted as we appreciate not everyone can take "good" fish pics Updates were awarded 1 point for every month, and an additional point if they felt a particular update warrented it. A further 5 points was awarded if the competitor had posted an update every month from the challenge start. Fish were assessed on Impression Shape Colour/ pattern Fins Eyes Nice and simple, with 5 points available for each category So the judges were not biassed the fis were allocated numbers and posted by me. They were then assessed as a group, with 5 points for the best group, 3 for second and 1 for third.
