Picture of the Year 2017

Dear Wikimedians,

The 2017 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 1260 candidate images.
  • In the second round, people voted for the 59 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 2446 people who voted in R1 and 3832 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:

  1. 610 people voted for the winner, File:Perereca-macaco - Phyllomedusa rohdei.jpg.
  2. In second place, 601 people voted for File:01-พระที่นั่งคูหาคฤหาสน์.jpg.
