Subject: [Commons-l] [POTY2009] Votin Round 1 now open
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that it has now
opened the 2009 Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year competition.
Any user registered at a Wikimedia wiki since 2009 or before
with more than 200 edits before 16 January 2010 (UTC) is welcome to vote.
Nearly 900 images that have been rated Featured Pictures
by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year
are fighting to impress the highest number of voters. From
professional animal and plants shots, over breathtaking
panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images,
images portraying world's best architecture, maps, emblems and diagrams
created with the most modern technology and impressing human portrays,
Commons features pictures for all flavours.
Two rounds of voting will be held:
In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like.
In the final round, when about 20 images are left, you must decide
for one image to become the Picture of the Year.
Check your eligibility now
and if you're allowed to vote, you may use one of your accounts for the voting.
In Round 1 we have sorted the images into topic categories for your convenience.
Feel free to vote for as many images as you like,
there's no limit in vote numbers in Round 1.
The Round 1 category winners and the top 10 overall will then make it
to the final.
We're now interested in your opinion which images qualify
for being the Picture of the Year 2009.
