This year, the Day of the Dead Wiki Style photo contest garnered 227 photographs from 44 participants. This is fewer overall photographs from the year before; however, the overall quality of the photographs was better as were the accompanying descriptions. This year, we decided to make the quality of the descriptions part of the judging. Another important difference was that because the 2 November holiday fell on a Saturday this year, a number of students were able to take photographs outside of the Mexico City metropolitan area. This year, we recieved photographs from states such as Oaxaca, Veracruz, Morelos, Jalisco and Michoacán. The winner of the best photo category was User:Targus90, and the winner of the most original photo category was User:Juanmendiola. The user who uploaded the most photographs was User:Luisroj96 with 57 entries. The winning photographs are below with descriptions. All entries can be seen here
