The Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year 2006 competition is now
over, and the winner has been selected. Thank you for voting.
Of the 662 Wikimedians who voted, 83 selected 'Aurora Borealis' 
as the 'Wikimedia Commons Picture of 2006'.
Has anyone attempted to contact the photographer, Joshua Strang? He
probably didn't even know it was on Commons; he might be interested to
know it was voted picture of the year.
I can't wait to find out he created it while off-duty thus it isn't
public domain... and that he expects licensing fees! :(
