The Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year is a competition that was first held in 2006. It aims to identify the best freely licensed images from those that during the year have been awarded Featured picture status. Featured picture status means that these images were chosen by the community as some of the finest on Commons.
Here are the pictures that became winners of the 10th annual photo competition on Commons.
The winners of this year’s National Geographic Magazine Photo Competition has been announced and the photos, as always, are stunning. This year $10 000 was awarded to Brian Yen for winning the Grand Prize and a trip to the National Geographic headquarters where he will participate in its annual photography seminar. The categories are People, Nature and Places and the captions are written by the photographers themselves.
