Re: [Wikimedia-l] Picture of the Year 2018: The results are in!
I am happy to notice that, if I recall correctly, two of these finalists were runner-ups of Wiki Science Competition 2017 (the tornado, Commons:Wiki Science Competition 2017/Winners - Wikimedia Commons "image sets" category) and of European Science Photo Competition 2015 (the frozen bubble, Commons:European Science Photo Competition 2015/Winners - Wikimedia Commons "general" category).
This IMHO proves how important is to focus also on technical and scientific fields in order to get multimedia of high quality. Specifically, these images were not considered of similar scientific relevance compared to the final winners, but they are wonderful pictures and they are valuable to illustrate scientific articles.

The 2018 Picture of the Year competition has ended and we are pleased to announce the results:
In both rounds, people voted for their favorite media files.
* In the first round, there were 963 candidate images.
* In the second round, people voted for the 57 finalists (the R1 top 30 overall and top 2 in each category).
In the second round – the “three votes” was used – eligible users could vote for up to 3 finalists – each of these 3 votes counted equal. There were 2983 people who voted in R1 and 3496 who voted in round R2.
We congratulate the winners of the contest and thank them for creating these beautiful media files and sharing them as freely licensed content:
