The category names should be in English and they should be consistent with upper categories -- to make them useful for users from all over the world, not only for "Canadian English users"... Look at the meta-category Category:License plates by country. All lower sub-categories should be the same for all countries. Wieralee (talk) 18:01, 13 March 2016 (UTC)
- Well, I guess the very sensible Wikipedia ENGVAR policy doesn't apply here on Commons then. There seems to be no logical need for spelling consistency in the hierarchy, but if those are the rules then I'll stop making things look better. Bazonka (talk) 18:20, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2017 is open!
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2017 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in R2.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2017 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the twelfth 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 (2017) 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 were 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.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top 2 from each sub-category.
In the final round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2017.
Round 2 will end on 22 July 2018, 23:59 UTC.
