Dear Wikimedians,

We are happy to announce that the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now 

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 skylines, historically relevant images, images 
portraying the world's best architecture, maps created with the most modern 
technology, 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 see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2016 page on Wikimedia Commons:

Round 1 will end 30 March 2017, 23:59:59.
