I wonder if such a model would work: * A group of volunteers selects images from Wikimedia Commons and uses a wiki to sort and rank them and finally create the list of images on a particular page. This page can hold already images "parked" for future publication - like we plan a few weeks in advance, so we only have to do the whole selection process maybe four times a year. This may be a designated area in the members wiki, which includes the Commons files.
* A script regularly reads this wiki page and determines which is now the current image of the day. It adds it to a RSS feed which holds the last n images of the day in descending order. This may be run as a cron job on the WMCH server, I am happy to set up some script (I already have done both PHP / MediaWiki API and RSS scripts) or just provide shell access to someone who manages this script. * Everyone else can then use the RSS feed to get the image of the day on their website, upload it to Tumblr, whatever, send a tweet, post it on facebook... (the latter two things can easily be done with http://twitterfeed.com/ which automatically posts from RSS to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn). The Wikipedia Article of the Day of de:wp is also published through RSS.
