Baritone Michael Anthony McGee won third prize and $4,000. Encouragement awards of $1,000 each went to tenor Bray Wilkins (Moscow, Idaho), mezzo-soprano Margaret Gawrysiak (Seattle) and baritone David Lara (Seattle).

The judges were Michael Eliasen (of the Metropolitan Opera), with Doris Yarick-Cross and Mark Morash; Julian Patrick was master of ceremonies, and David McDade the piano accompanist.
