wikiodisha1
Dear Wikimedians,

The 2014 Picture of the Year competition has ended and we are pleased to
announce the results:

We shattered participation records this year -- more people voted in Picture
of the Year 2014 than ever before. In both rounds, 6698 different people
voted for their favorite media files.

   - In the first round, 4504

   people voted for all 983 candidates

   .
   - In the second round, 3824
   <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Picture_of_the_Year/2014/R2/Results/Voters>
   people voted for the 54 finalists (the R1 top 30 overall and top 2 in each
   category).


In the second round - the "three votes" system was enabled for the first
time this year - eligible users could vote for up to 3 finalists - each of
these 3 votes counted equal.

We congratulate the winners of the contest and thank them for creating
these beautiful media files and sharing them as freely licensed content:

   1. 547 people voted for the winner, Two Julia Butterflies (Dryas iulia)
   drinking the tears of turtles in Ecuador
