Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth 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 (2013) 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. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Category renamesEdit

Hi Deborahjay,

I'm seeing your great work regarding to Israel related staff. Just a small note. When you use bad name to rename a category that means that it is completely incorrect name but in most of the time that is not the case. The point is that the category is linked from he.wiki and also in wikidata. In the case of Yanuh-Gat - Yanuh-Jat it is also linked from the template {{North District (Israel)}}. So it is better to create redirect and also to change in he.wiki and wikidata. -- Geagea (talk) 14:10, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
