Many IGEES guppy breeders prefer “freestyle” or experimental breeding over breeding to the standards set up by guppy fancy organizations. The IGEES Guppy Innovation Contest was created to provide a way for all guppy breeders to exhibit their creations. These are the guidelines for conducting an IGEES Guppy Innovation contest. Based on a contest held in Japan by the Shin-Shu Guppy club. This contest is designed to be held as a stand alone exhibition or can be used for open classes in a guppy fancy show. Guppies in these contests may or may not conform to established standards.
