Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Japanese culture & diasporas in the U.S.[edit]

Skeezix1000, thanks for looking into the relationship between Category:Japanese diaspora in the United States and Category:Japanese culture in the United States. In terms of hierarchy, however, "diaspora" should go below "culture" because the latter has a larger scope. A Japanese diaspora requires the presence of or involvement by a Japanese person (or a person of Japanese descent) and always carries a flavor of Japanese culture. Japanese culture, on the other hand, doesn't necessarily involve a Japanese diaspora. For instance, an American citizen of non-Japanese descent can take a Japanese pottery class at any community college in big cities, enjoy watching anime on Cartoon Network or on his laptop, purchase a translated manga at Barnes & Noble, or view Japanese artworks at a museum, without ever setting a foot in a J-town or meeting a Japanese person. In California, there is a so-called "Japanese" restaurant in almost every shopping plaza and a lot of "regular" supermarkets, such as Vons (Safeway) and Ralphs sell packaged "sushi" (or what resembles sushi), but many of these restaurants/supermarkets are operated by people of non-Japanese descent, serve/sell what Americans perceive as Japanese dishes and have mostly non-Japanese clientele. I'm not saying whether they are good or bad. I just want to point out the fact that all of these things ALWAYS carry a flavor of Japanese culture, but often don't involve a Japanese diaspora. Therefore, could you reverse the hierarchy between these two categories? Thanks. --Nandaro (talk) 16:37, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your note. Sorry for the delay in responding. Let me look at this again. Cheers, --Skeezix1000 (talk) 21:21, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I've added (English and Japanese) descriptions here to show the scope of the "culture" category. Depiction/caricature of Japanese culture (or the Japanese people) in American art and entertainment would also fall under culture but not under diaspora. --Nandaro (talk) 00:41, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for my late response (I've been under the weather). You are correct. An exhibit of Japanese art at a museum, for example, could be completely unrelated to the Japanese diaspora. Some of the content in the culture category might better belong in the diaspora category, but that's another issue. Cheers, --Skeezix1000 (talk) 18:47, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
No problem. Yes, I do agree some of the subcategories under culture could/should be moved to the diaspora category (and perhaps I will move some). Thanks and take care. --Nandaro (talk) 21:25, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
