Ugly Koi Contest

Welcome to our first Ugly Koi Contest. We are here to have a little fun at the expense of our ugly koi. What is an ugly koi? A fish that only a mother could love, or the least attractive of the bunch. In any case, if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, than ugly is in the hands of the voters. Review the rules below, enter your fish, and vote. You might win some Nearly World Famous Koi Food, but one thing is for sure........ It will be fun, exciting, and a cool way to share pictures of our pets. Thanks and good luck!


The contest is open for entries from June 19, 2012 until July 20, 2012. All entries must be submitted by 12:00 p.m. EST on June 20, 2012. Photos and videos will be added in the order that they are submitted and confirmed.

Contestants and visitors may “vote” at anytime for their Ugly Koi, however voting is limited to one vote per day, per email address. Vote early, vote often, involve your friends and social networks, play nice and have fun!

The winner will be chosen by the number of votes that their photo or video receive. The photo or video with the most votes, will win. In the event of a tie, the winner will be decided by which ever one was submitted first to the Nearly World Famous Koi Food website.
