Round 1 of POTY 2013


Round 2 of POTY 2013


Beta testing periods

  • There will be several days of beta testing period, so we can check whether the voting script is working successfully.
  • Votes in the testing period — the several days before the official opening date — are also eligible. The committee will count them as well as the votes cast in the later period.
  • If you find a bug for the voting tool, please report it to MediaWiki talk:Gadget-EnhancedPOTY.js; report other issues to Commons talk:Picture of the Year/2013.

Voter eligibility

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Wed, 01 Jan 2014 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 live edits on any single Wikimedia project before Wed, 01 Jan 2014 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2013 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).
  • Even if a user has multiple eligible accounts, each user can only cast votes from one account.
  • Votes from IP users will be considered invalid.
  • Votes cast by ineligible users/accounts, multiple/duplicate votes cast in violation of the rules will be invalidated.
  • Due to the large vote volume, we are unable to accept voters that do not meet this criteria as determined by the official POTY 2013 voter eligibility tool.
  • We may contact you on your talk page for up to 1 year after you vote to alert you to contest results and invite you to participate in next year's contest. You may opt-out at any time.

Voting rules

In Round 1 - multiple vote - eligible users may vote for as many candidates as they wish to support (one vote per image).

In the final Round 2 - single vote - eligible users may vote for only one finalist. Note: if you cast more than one vote, only the most recent vote will be counted.

Image eligibility

Round 1
  • All Featured Pictures from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013.
  • The top 30 images from Round 1, by number of votes, from any category will go to the final round — the categories are irrelevant when it comes to counting the votes.
  • If category #1 and #2 are not in the top 30, they will be also promoted to the Final to guarantee a diverse final.

A candidate should not be disqualified or replaced without careful discussion as long as it is not deleted (Ex. : a deletion request alone is not enough reason to disqualify an image.)
