Your Vulcan[edit]

Hi Airwolf.
Maybe you know, I'm not very interested by planes in general, by I'm very interested and impressed by all your very good pictures you nominate in FPC.
Recently, you succeed with an "Avro Vulcan", but the discussion was hard, because of two disturbing towers and a plane (Frecce tricolori ?) just under the wheels.
I had this idea for a long time, but did not have free time enough to do something.
Today I've tried this for you, as a gift and tribute to your great contributions in "Commons".
I hope you will enjoy.
Friendly yours, --Jebulon (talk) 16:47, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 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).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

POTD Interview[edit]

Hi Airwolf,

My name is Michael Guss and I'm a communications volunteer with the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. We have a feature on the Wikimedia blog [1] to profile the photographers behind the beautiful photos that become Picture of the Day (POTD) on Wikimedia Commons. You can see some of our past POTD posts here: https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/communications/picture-of-the-day/ Given that one of your photos, Frecce Tricolor RIAT 2011, is scheduled for 6 August 2013, we'd love to do a short interview with you by email to discuss your photography and your POTD. Please let me know if you would be interested! You can email me mguss@wikimedia.org or respond on my talk page.

Thanks,

Michael 216.38.130.164 17:14, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
