This year the Oulu Music Video Festival granted qualifying licences to four countries which gave the people who had won in their home countries straight access to the final in Oulu, Finland. In accordance with true sportsmanship, the air guitar players were also offered the opportunity to participate in a last-minute high altitude training camp before the final. The camp included, for example, inspiring lectures and practice classes.

The competition itself became very tight and bloody, in a smbolic way, of course. The dominating World Champion, Zac "Mr Magnet" Monro renewed his championship, even though the contestants were ablaze and energetic. National champions from different countries were competing, including David "Super Dave" Williams from Australia. Due to the high level and first class of the contest the second place was tied by New Zealand's Toby Peneha and Andrew Buckles from Canada.
