It is open to all members of FHCS and AF who are residents in Singapore as well as FHCS members who stay in Southern Malaysia. The President of FHCS will not participate in this competition to ensure fair-play.

3. To participate, a member must submit 2 digital photographs (left & right full views of the fish) and a video clip of his/her flowerhorn, together with his/her name, AF nick, home address and hand-phone number.
