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 »

Question concerning file permission[edit]

Dear Amada44, I'd like to use the image "" for a publication and I'm unsure about the permission status. Am I allowed to use this image? Or are there any restrictions? Thank you very much for your answer!

Tagging files[edit]

Hi Amada, thank you for your message. So I usually request a permission when I have real doubts whether the uploader was an author and moreover when they look suspicious (let's say "too professional"). This is the case for File:Savannah Cat closeup.jpg (please note that EXIF data is missing completely). And for File:Ceramic 3D Printing by Studio Under6.jpg the original description said: Ceramic 3D Printing by Studio Under and author=[[User:Eranglr1|Studio Under]]. Here I had doubts whether the uploader Eranglr1 is really a representative (copyrigh holder or disponent) of said Studio Under. In this latter case this exact images are also presented on Pinterest [2] and Facebook [3], of course not under free licenses. And as I understand your point about that it might not make much practical sense to tag images 10 years old, I do still believe that mentioned cases above did qualify for the permission request. However also, for old files I think that it's not the best to pretend that they 'might be' OK, just because we don't know it for sure, as we aren't able to verify it after such a long time. This point of view of mine is influenced strongly by our precautionary principle. Anyways, as I rarely personally delete the files that I tag myself, of course I'm completely fine and really open for any other admin to let's say change "npd" situation to normal "del-req". And this can be done without consulting me, as I'd express my opinion in the del req. anyways and let the community decide. Masur (talk) 11:15, 12 July 2016 (UTC)


Amanda, Du kannst die Beschreibung nicht rückgängig machen, denn zum einen ist das KEIN offizielles Verkehrszeichen (Aussehen und Farben sind falsch), zum anderen bin ich NICHT mehr an der Gestaltung beteiligt. Das hat dieser Max bewirkt. Ich habe das von mir neu gezeichnete, offizielle Verkehrszeichen als eigene Datei neu hochgeladen. Bitte wähle eine neutrale Bezeichnung für Deine Datei, aber zitiere nicht mehr das Reichsgesetzblatt. Ich habe gerne Verbesserungen vorgenommen, doch das ist unerwünscht.

@Mediatus: Jetzt entspann dich ein bisschen. Ich habe ja geschrieben, dass ich das Bild auf deines zurücksetzen werde und das ich dein edit grundsetzlich gut finde. Somit ist es ja wieder ein offizielles Verkehrszeichen. Amada44  talk to me 12:55, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
