There were three age categories Children (5–12); Teens (13–19); Adults (20+). Prizes were awarded for first and second place in each category.

First prize in the Adult category was a $150 book shop voucher; second prize was a $75 voucher. First prize in the Teen category was a $80 voucher; second prize was a $40 voucher. First prize in the Child category was a $50 voucher; second prize was a $30 voucher. All prize winners also received an Annual Pass to the Garden.
