The 1st European Individual Artistic Gymnastics Championships took place from 2 to 5 June 2005 in Debrecen, Hungary. There was no junior competition this year.

Format of Competition

All participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.

This was also the last European Championships to use the old scoring system, before the 2006 Code of Points was introduced.
