There were forty-two images ⟨twenty-three PDIs and nineteen prints⟩ for Mike Davis (Rochdale PS ) to judge in the first competition of the year. Mike explained his judging philosophy and said that his comments were his own thoughts about each image and that another judge may well have a different opinion. With that in mind, he ranked each image in their relative categories in relation to the others and came to the conclusion that two prints ("My Best Friend" by Vicky Mansfield and Barry Barnes's "Under My Umbrella") merited equal first place.

In the PDI section, Charlie Saycell and Mary Mansfield were equal first-place winners with their "Little Hayfield" and "Polar Bear Meal" respectively.
