This was discussed a number of times[sic.] onwiki and there was no consensus at 
all to allow NC on commons.

Citing from Commons:Village pump/Copyright: "One of Wikimedia Commons' basic 
principles is: "Only free content is allowed." Please do not ask why unfree 
material is not allowed at Wikimedia Commons or suggest that allowing it would 
be a good thing.ump/Copyright"

I agree with Gnangarra .

Best,

the NC discussion from memory fell in that they impacted the ability to
include them in Wikipedia pages that are then rebroadcast by people like
Google and answers.com  because it was a more restrictive license.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year 2019 competition is now open

2020-03-17 Thread Steinsplitter Wiki via Wikimedia-l
Dear Wikimedians,



We are happy to announce that the 2019 Picture of the Year competition is now 
open.

 The Commons Picture of the Year is a competition that was first run in 2006. 
It aims to identify the best freely licensed images from those that during the 
year have been awarded Featured picture status. This is the fourteenth edition 
of POTY.



Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on 
Commons (FP) during the year 2019, to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international 
Wikimedia Commons community. From professional animal and plant shots to 
breathtaking panoramas and historically relevant images, Commons features 
pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.


Two rounds of voting will be held:

  *   In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The 
first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the 
final.

  *   In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must 
decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.


To vote, you must be an established Wikimedia user with more than 75 edits 
before January 1, 2020.


To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2019 page on Wikimedia
Commons: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:POTY/2019/VOTE

Round 1 begins on 8 March 2020, 15:00 and ends on 22 March 2020, 23:59:59 [UTC]
Round 2 begins on 5 April 2020, 15:00 and ends on 19 April 2020, 23:59:59 [UTC]

Thanks,

POTY 2019 committee
