Each council may enter 10 images in each category, the entries are judged, and the winner is announced at the annual International Conference of Photography held each fall. There were 13 councils or associations participating this year with 6 competing in all three sections.

This year NECCC again won over-all first place with a total of 295 points. The North Central Camera Club Council was in second place with 288 points and the Wisconsin Area Camera Clubs Organization was in third with 280 points.

NECCC also took first place in the Projected Digital Image category with 108 points. The Wisconsin Area Camera Clubs Organization was second with 105 points and the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs was in third with 102 points.
