The World Pet Association (WPA) presents the 1st International Shrimp Competition during its fourth annual Aquatic Experience in Chicago, Illinois, Nov. 4 to 6, 2016, at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center. The competition is sponsored by Dennerle, JBJ Transworld Aquatic, Shrimp King and the WPA.

The 1st International Shrimp Competition will give shrimp breeders the opportunity to share their hobby with the greater public and exhibit different freshwater dwarf shrimp species and color morphs across ten categories. An international jury will judge all entries and winners will be publicly honored on the Aquatic Experience show floor on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 3 pm, including the top Shrimp King Award of $500. Additionally, designated competing dwarf shrimp will be included in the raffle being held on the show floor Sunday afternoon for all show attendees.

Contestants will compete in ten categories for $1,000 in prize money and the top Shrimp King Award, and all competitors will receive free admission to the Aquatic Experience show floor, experiencing “everything aquatic under one roof,” from saltwater and freshwater fish to marine plants and mammals.

Registrations for the 1st International Shrimp Competition are due by September 30, 2016. For complete contest rules, regulations and registration form, visit For more information and tickets to Aquatic Experience, visit
