Second international roundEdit

The national finalists are selected in an intermediate round focused mostly on the originality and the image quality.

  • For the categories processed with Montage (people in science, microscopy images and general category), only the images with more than 6 out of 10 avaraged votes are showed in this summary. All jurors gave a vote for 0.0 to 1.0 to every images.
  • The other categories (non photographic media, set of images) were processed with a xls file, and a different scale was used where all the jurors gave votes 10 (best) to 1 (worst) to their first ten choices. Files that were not selected by the jurors were assigned "0.0". The average is lower than in the previous case, and the 10-12 voted choices are shown.

Like with Wiki Loves Monuments, international and national juries can show different taste, especially when some juries are small. For this reason it possible that the second finalists is evaluated better than the winners at the international level.

WinnersEdit

The final winner and 4-6 runner-ups were finally selected out of a final brainstorming from the finalists after the intermediate round, with some minor rearrangement based on

  • the quality of their scientific description;
  • the resolution and the presence of technical and scientific details;
  • the use on wikimedia platforms so far;
  • specific criticism by jurors;
  • similarity to the winners of the previous edition;
  • a balance of subjects and themes.

People in ScienceEdit

  International winner
  Erwan Amice

The exploration of the new frontier of knowledge and the role of teamwork are summarized in this beautiful image. The picture embodies the theme of scientific research in Antarctica, which is present in many of the best international finalists. This concept represents the never-ending strive for new uncharted territories of knowledge. Compared to the other images, this goes a step further exploring the environment also under the surface, thus adding an additional step. The lack of a recognizable face is common also in other images, and can be seen as a metaphor of the unknown work that unnamed scientists perform every day. In this case this lack of recognition it’s however a consequence of the equipment and the action. Even if we don’t see the face of the diver, we fell however the teamwork, represented by the rope and the perfect tunnel the team had to build to dive under the ice layers. We feel the expertise of the other colleague with the camera who is also involved in the mission and being underwater cannot be perceived as a simple bystander.

Microscopy imagesEdit


  International winner
  Massimo Brizzi

This images is astonishing for its colorful ensemble and neat lines, which is attractive to both children and adults, general audience and scientists. The depiction is clear and scientifically sound, as much as an infographic of a textbook, and as a result it does not simply captures your attention but it stimulates good scientific questions. All main organs of Ascaris spp. are visible (e.g. citoplasmatic portion of muscle cells, syncytial epidermis) and clearly defined. It's of course an image that must be part of an encyclopaedia for its informative value, but can be used in many other activities.
