Hi Nelson,
There will be a qualifier, where you need to take part: details here

QUALIFICATION ROUND

Rules
  • It can be a current layout or one from a previous work
  • One entry per person
  • It must be hardscape-only and not an aquascape with plants and water

  • Entries must be submitted by 1200GMT, 20th February 2016
  • If you enter you MUST be able to attend the UKAPS Aquascaping Experience on Saturday 5th March 2016
  • Overseas entrants are welcome but they must be able to fund their own travel and accommodation
  • We politely request that your submission image is not deliberately made public until after the announcement

Can you simply turn up to this or do you need to sign up somewhere? I understand that entry is free,but just wondered if it was a turn up and walk in on the day kind of thing, or if you needed to have your name down in advance. It looks like a great event, and just the sort of thing that would really help relatively inexperienced aquascapers like myself :)

He was talking about plane tickets not tickets to get into the event
UKAPS do not offer free plane tickets ;) But everyone is welcome from any country not just the UK :) also to participate in the Hardscaping competition :)
