In the ensemble category, Deng Chi-feng and Yao Lu-hsin from the National Taiwan University of Arts were crowned champions for their version of Santa Monica Dream, while a group consisting of six members from Ming Chuan University placed second.

In addition to the Awards, the Jin-Shaow Music Festival was held the previous day (May 10) at the Chueh-Hsuan Chinese Gardens, Tamsui Campus, and featured several well-known musicians, as well as participants from last year's Jin-Shaow Awards.
