Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.

- Eh nee, niet echt, maar ik verbaas me hier over niets. Het was als ik mij goed herinner mijn eigen plaatje. Jcwf (talk) 15:10, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
- Ach, er zijn genoeg ander plaatjes van het beestje en het was ook niet zo'n mooi kiekje. Ik had me ook voorgenomen er 'n betere opname van te gaan maken. Ik heb nu een betere kamera en het is hier niet zo ver vandaan, maar er is nooit wat van gekomen. Jcwf (talk) 15:27, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
