Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open! Dear Wikimedians,
Pine sent a short notification to both lists (commons-I and wikimedia-I)
regarding POTY round two at 15 May 2016, now a few details:
We are happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year
is now open. This year will be the ninth edition of the annual
Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional
contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons.
Wikimedia users are invited
to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last
year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the
international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered
in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant
shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical
images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive
human portraits, and so much more.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted
for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate
images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30
overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.
In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become
the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
