We congratulate the winners of the contest and thank them for creating these beautiful images and sharing them as freely licensed content:
- 157 people voted for the winner, an image of a lightbulb with the tungsten filament smoking and burning.
- In second place, 155 people voted for an image of "Sviati Hory" (Holy Mountains) National Park in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine.

We also sincerely thank to all 4070 voters for participating and we hope you will return for next year's contest in early 2015. We invite you to continue to participate in the Commons community by sharing your work.

People at Wikimania 2014Edit
Thanks for all the work you've been doing sorting the Wikimania photos, but I don't think you should be including files like File:Barbican, London - 22 June 2014 - Andy Mabbett - 39.JPG in categories like category:Fabian Tompsett at Wikimania 2014 because, as the file name states this was taken in June not during Wikimania. It was taken at a Wikimania fringe event though, so I'm not going to revert before hearing your opinion. Chris McKenna (WMUK) (talk) 08:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
