Commons Picture of the Year contest in final round

By Ral315, 21 January, 2008

The Commons Picture of the Year competition for 2007 has reached its final round, which closes on January 24. The 28 finalists can be seen below:

This year is the first that the voting is taking place outside the Commons; custom software was written by Bryan, allowing the vote to be held on the Wikimedia Toolserver. Voting via the Wikimedia Toolserver avoids edit conflicts, and allows users to make all their choices much more quickly. Information about the voting method and how to get a voting token is at Commons:Picture of the Year/2007/Voting. Results will not be made public until the end of voting, at which time the entire database of all votes (without the names of the individual users who made each vote) will be released for public inspection.
