*Look at the calendar* Hmm.... 

Indeed. Uploading of photographs finished at the end of February. It was 
decided by the organizers that awarding of prizes would wait until after all 
the photographs had been individually assessed by museum staff for copyright 
validity etc. Given the quantity of photos this has taken quite a very long 
time to finish. 

The recent Dutch "Wiki Loves Art" contest had a prize awarding event in the 
calendar from the start, which I think is a good idea. 

I think next time we should talk to the museums about awarding prizes before 
all the images are assessed.
