update on black bear with cubs imageEdit
I have edited the file to include a link to the image. Please let me know if it is correct now.
I had uploaded this image from flickr using the wiki wizard, and entered all the information that was requested. Apparently the link to the flickr image was not entered in the proper location. The wizard accepted the image.
Grasshoppers in the Field sculptureEdit
Hi, I'm new to contributing and would like to continue contributing my images. What does FOP mean? The image is my own, originally published: https://www.flickr.com/photos/number7cloud/19860233006/in/dateposted-public/ Would you mind explaining more so I don't make this same mistake?
- Hi, you may find this page useful: Commons:Freedom of panorama. In essence, there are some countries (such as the US) where it is not okay to take a photo of a work of art/architecture and upload that photo under a free license. For the case of your uploads, copyright belongs to Gary Greff, and his permission would be needed before photographs of his sculptures can be accepted here. Chenzw Talk 14:07, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! That's very helpful to know. I understand now!
Reminder: Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2016 is open!Edit
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh 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 (2016) 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 #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 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.
