    I'm proud to say that one of my photos (of Gyeongju, Korea) won 'photo of the day' on wikipedia back in 2004. Unfortunately, I cannot locate the photo anywhere on wiki commons, so I guess it was eliminated in the greater machinations.

    As a policy, I've always opened all my photos under the CC license. As a result, I've "found" many of my photos on wikipedia– including photos that I didn't upload myself.
