The first prize in the series cathegory went to Goran Dorić for four photographs named "In colour"; the second prize went to another Slovenian guest, Stanko Pelc ("Wood colours"), and the third to Jerko Gudac for the series of photographs from a building site „Under the umbrella".
Recommendations for the series were received (again!) by Miran Orožim ("Drevo" - Wood), Goran Cajzek ("Poplava u turopoljskom lugu" - Flood in the Turopolje wood) and the Hungarian guest Valenz Sandor ("Kernholz lebt wieder, Kern opet živi" - Kern lives again).
After the second place for the series, Slovenian forester Stanko Pelc won the 1st prize for the single photograph „Srednji detelj“, Marina Dragaš won the 2nd prize for the photograph „Šumski letač", and Goran Cajzek won th 3rd prize for the photograph „I drvo ima lice" - A tree has a face as well.

The jury decided that the photography "Šumski konjic" (Forest horse) by Željko Gubijan will stand for the Exhibition poster.
