The contest received entries from 21 club members in three categories: Landscape, People and Nature. In total, 117 photos were entered.

Two images received honorable mention. These were by Kristine Rubish, for Predator-Prey, and Andy Butler, for Pagosa Buck.

Winners in the People category were Chris Roebuck, for Shy Russian and Fred Guthrie, for Lincoln Durham (tied for 1st). Third place in the People category was awarded to Fred Guthrie, for Riverboat Captain. Receiving honorable mention were Bob Green, for Street of Flowers and Liz Mockbee, for Mountain Photographer.

Judging of the Landscape category resulted in a three-way tie for first place. The winning images were Chimney Rock Milky Way, by Dave Minkel, Mount Hitchcock, by Andy Butler, and Courthouse Rock Sunset, by Andy Butler. Honorable mention in the Landscape group was presented to Liz Mockbee, for Kualoa Ranch, and Dave Minkel, for Yavapai Point.
