Comments

I propose we will have "Illustration" and "Animation" categories.--miya (talk) 17:55, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Too many categories, in my opinion. I return to a proposal of mine made last year, with the intention of discussion the possibility of thematic awards:
  1. Nature: Plant life
  2. Nature: Animal life (all animals except arthropods)
  3. Nature: Insects & etc (arthropods)
  4. Nature: Land and sea
  5. Constructions & urban views
  6. Nature: the Universe (pictures of the sky, planets, etc.)
  7. People & human activities (the least homogeneous theme)
  8. Diagrams & animations (excludes artwork)

Notice that this list doesn't necessarily coincide with the galleries made for voting, which should have more or less the same number of images. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:50, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Why not use the categories of 2008? --Aqwis (talk) 16:16, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
    • Hum...shall we try the categories of POTY2008 at first, and then modify them if necessary? I copy them below.--miya (talk) 17:00, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

I arranged FPs in Commons:Picture of the Year/2009/Preparation/Galleries. If they are OK, I will move this page to Commons:Picture of the Year/2009/Galleries together with its subpages.--miya (talk) 00:46, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

  2. "Illustrations" or "Posters and tickets" (to be included in "Artworks" or other categories if not many)

I withdrew my proposal to make "Animations" category (they are going to be not so many in the end) and "Illustrations" category (I found it is not easy to distinguish illustraions from other artworks).--miya (talk) 01:13, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
