- Overall, the contest involved 40 countries, over 2,200 people, and nearly 10,000 images. Here are the winners.
The European Science Photo Competition has come to a close and the winners announced. Over 2,200 people from 40 countries participated, adding nearly 10,000 images to the Wikimedia Commons—everything from nanostructures of various materials to the vastness of space, and from portraits of scientists to videos of chemical reactions.
Everything separated into 5 competition categories. Here are the winners.
Many of the photos came in from Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Kazakhstan, Macedonia, Italy, and Germany, but per capita the leaders were Estonia, Macedonia, and Greece. 93.3% of participants had never before uploaded any images to Commons.
Urmas Tartes, a well-known Estonian entomologist and nature photographer, likes to say that a good picture broadens the horizons of human understanding. He defines the perfect photo as something what combines knowledge with emotion and what is presented in a most suitable environment. These images serve that purpose well, given that they are and will be used on Wikipedia.
