The voting could be carried out with the global event. Vote eligibility could be participating in the events for example.

Of course not every country will have an event so not sure if this approach is a good one.

Hmm, and maybe something where we can invite more people to Wikipedia? Billboards with :
Join decade of knowledge. Participate! Write new article!
Or something similar. I am also against POT-DEC, poor thing for big global event such as this.

Why not a world wide Wikitakes or a Photowalk day that way everyone everywhere can participate in it, no need for big off Commons organisation

I do not think we want to select POT-DEC (lets not call it POTD which is something else :) ) from older POTYs since we don't have a large number to choose from. Also, it would be very boring to re-nominate the same winner again. If anything existing POTY winners perhaps should be disqualified for this reason.
I am not too sure about the procedure would be best to be honest. I hope this discussion would determine that very aspect. :)
US GLAM is appealing but we do want something global. Certainly US GLAM partnerships should be part of it but they should not be all of it. WikiLoves Monuments was a good precursor to this kind of activity. Perhaps a kind of "lessons learned" assessment may be useful while working on this.

The obvious: select POTD from all the POTYs :)
