Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2010 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 2010. Any user registered
at a Wikimedia wiki since 2010 or prior with more than 200 edits as of 1
January 2011 (UTC) is welcome to vote. Check your eligibility now. If
you meet the criteria, you are able to vote.
Nearly 800 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.
