January/February

This was the first contest to have a Capture the Flag division, and all of its entries - all receiving scores of 8 and above - were put into the official Capture the Flag rotation in SRB2 v1.09.4, with Techno Hill CTF Zone renamed to "Conveyor Conflict Zone". However, they were removed again in v2.0. The Single Player division was also considered to be of high quality, which resulted in this contest having the highest average score of all contests in the old voting system.

All three Single Player entries later became part of popular level packs: Aero Shrine Zone Act 1, which was praised for its unique sky theme, was featured in Blue Heaven. Storm Ruins Zone Act 2, a sequel to Storm Ruins Zone from the July/August 2005 OLDC, became part of Acid Missile. Golden Sands Zone was added to Mystic Realm as a bonus level. Both of Mystic's maps were made very quickly: Golden Sands Zone was created in three days, while Techno Hill CTF Zone was built in four hours.

This contest broke the previous contest's record of 27 for the highest number of entries submitted, with 32 levels in total. Oogaland managed to win all three divisions.

The download below compiles the maps that could be recovered several years later. Gravity Zone, Jungle Japes Zone and Waterfall Valley Zone Act 2 are not included, although the latter would reappear in FuriousFox's level pack Acid Missile.

July/August

This was the first contest to be held after Version 1.09.4 was released. It introduced a division for the newly added Circuit gametype. The division was eventually discontinued after the November/December 2011 contest. This contest also includes the highest-rated Circuit map ever, Race Alley Zone, which was put into the official Circuit rotation for v2.0. Crater Lakes Zone and Nebulous Zone caused consistency failures, the latter due to improper weather changing.

Moon Temple Zone and Dandjr Palace Zone were both heavily inspired by Aerial Garden Zone from Mystic Realm, one of the most popular custom levels at the time and now a bonus level in SRB2 itself. Both used variations of Aerial Garden Zone's texturing scheme and featured its characteristic layout style of openly designed rooms with difficult platforming over death pits, as well as its heavy usage of Jetty-Syns to harass the player. Some of Moon Temple Zone's segments were generally considered to be cheap or tedious. It nevertheless won the Single Player division with a high average, mainly because it only received three valid votes, of which the lowest one was dropped because the author had voted on the other maps, and because one of the remaining votes was a perfect 10.
