> Dear Wikimedians,
> We are happy to announce that the 2017 Picture of the Year competition is
> now open.
> Picture of the Year 2017 is the twelfth edition of the annual Wikimedia
> Commons image competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by
> users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their
> favorite images featured on Commons (FP) during the year 2017, 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 skylines, historically relevant
> images, images portraying the world's best architecture, 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 (and current) 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 2017 page on Wikimedia
