is Instagram compatible with Creative Commons?
Can I upload *my* Instagram pics on Commons (so could it be used for WLM)?
Please consider that I'm not suggesting Instagram pics are good for WLM
(they are filtered and all, probably not very suitable for illustrating
monuments on Wikipedia)
but is a legal matter.
Thanks to a Wikimedia Foundation grant, today we inaugurated an exhibition
of the mexican winner photos of WLM.
The first exhibition will be hosted at UAM Iztapalapa, where one of
Student Club is based. In three months, the photos will be displayed in
various schools, cultural centers and the Metro of Mexico City.

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year
competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which
images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to
established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:
1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was
registered *before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000*[UTC].
2. This user account must have more than *75 edits* on *any

3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either
on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia
projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account
through SUL <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Unified_login>).
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the
international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered
in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to
breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant
images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems,
diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human
portraits, 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 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 2012 page on Wikimedia
Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest.
Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first
round by *30 January 2013*

I wanted to give everyone here an early heads up that the WLM 2012 Calendar
(A 2013 calendar for the 2012 competition that is :) ) is available on the
shop at http://shop.wikimedia.org/WLM2012 for purchase. It includes some
WLM stickers and buttons and some Commons and Wikipedia stickers. Right now
you're going to have to follow the link to find it and it'll stay hidden
until around midnight UTC for Monday when we're starting a 24 hour editor
sale. The Calendar is currently already on sale (for $10 USD , normal
$12.50 USD ) and we'll ship anywhere.
The page itself will probably change a bit over the next day as I make some
backend changes for the coming week and add some more photos for the

I was bold today, and sorted the list of posible exhibitions chronological
Tomorrow will be the official opening of the exhibition in Gouda, as I was
not involved in the actual work, I am very curious about the result.
I seems that there are still some opportunities for people, and a bit
curious how final some suggestions are, so just a friendly reminder for
people about this exhibition.
Apologies for cross posting - your efforts help make the Picture of the
Year contest accessible to people everywhere!
