Connected Open Heritage project started

Hi all, (cross posting on purpose, no excuses)

Great news for everyone interested in cultural heritage.


Wikimedia Sverige, along with partners UNESCO, Wikimedia Italia and Cultural Heritage without Borders, has received a $300,000 grant from Kulturstiftelsen (the Swedish postcode lottery) to work on a project called Connected Open Heritage.[1]


The project lasts until July 2017, and during that time we will work on:

  • Migrating the information in the WLM database to Wikidata

  • Updating and adding new data about monuments, including from ten countries where cultural heritage is at risk

  • Uploading tens of thousands of images and media files from cultural heritage institutions

  • Increasing awareness about what the Wikimedia movement is doing in the cultural heritage field, both to the Wikimedia communities, general public and also to experts in the field

  • Promoting open data and free licenses

  • Organizing a photo exhibition with images of cultural heritage in at least three countries.


All info on the project, including who to contact if you want to get involved, timeplan, activities and such are available on Meta. The talk page on Meta is open for comments and questions, and all input on this is welcome.

2nd phase: Prizes for the international contest (addressed mainly to the local organizers)

Dear all,
probably you know that the winners for international contest receive a prize as per this grant https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_international_team/2015_coordination.

Like Santa Claus, I have in charge the distribution of the prizes.

This how the prizes will be distributed:

From 1st to 3rd place: 1'000USD for each winner
From 4th to 8th place: 400 USD for each winner

Below there is the process, sorry if it's formal but it's connected with a grant:

Step 1: I am contacting the local organizers to be in touch with the winners and to inform the winners about their position and the prize, this helps to avoid an trustfulness communication between me and the winners
Step 2: The winner has to write me an email, putting in copy a local organizer, where they accept the prize and give me the real name, an email and possibly the address (this action is important to define clearly the identity of the winner, the local organizer helps to agree about the identity of the winner)
Step 3: In the email they must indicate which kind of prize they would with the data to proceed to transfer the prize. It means a bank account to transfer or to indicate which kind of voucher they would (giving all data helpful to transfer the voucher) (deadline 15 December)
Step 4: The fiscal sponsor, will proceed to transfer the amount or to buy the voucher after my indication (deadline 31 December)

Unfortunately the prizes must be transferred before the end of December because the grant must close the 3rd January.

Winners who doesn't communicate these data before the 15 December are considered automatically like withdrawing the prize and we proceed to distribute them to the 9th and 10th place.

For this reason I would ask to contact me as soon as possible the following local organizers:
  • WLM Germany (I have sent an email to Nicole Ebber, but contact me considering that there are three prizes to distribute)
  • WLM France
  • WLM Russia
  • WLM Iran (they have a reserve)

I am already in contact with these organizers:

  • WLM Thailand (I am already in contact with Taweetham)
  • WLM Italy (in contact with Cristian Cenci)
  • WLM Austria (in contact with Raimund Liebert)

Kind regards

4 countries missing!

Hi all,

four countries are still missing from the jury pool: 
- Macedonia
- Norway
- Spain
- Tunisia

If you are in touch with the jury in these countries, and have the top-10 images available, please contact me or Romaine as soon as possible! Soon we will have to start with the jury process, and after that no new images can be added any more. 

Best,
Lodewijk

Non-monuments winning?

Hi all,

I wonder, in some of the international nominees (beautiful pictures again btw, congratulations), there are some where there is no identified monument available. For example, there is a photo of the Nile river without any identified monument, and in Brazil a photo of the Army headquarters without identified monument. 

I have my doubts about such photos - while they are of good quality, if there is no identified monument, I wonder if they should be disqualified for the international prizes. 

I would value your thoughts on this. Maybe it doesn't come up at all (I don't know how high up they will end), maybe it does. 

Best,
Lodewijk

Old dump of the bot database?

Hello all,
we have a price in France for newly illustrated monuments but unfortunately we have forgotten to make a copy of the database dump before the competition starts this year. And as the monument database dump ( https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Monuments_database/Sql ) is overwritten every day we can't get old databases :(

So is there any chance someone there has kept a copy of the database dump from 31st August?

Thanks,
Sylvain

Per-monument statistics?

Hi all,

I remember that in 2012 there was a tool that showed how much each monument was photographed and other very important statistics about WLM. I believe it was developed by Platonides, but don't remember for sure.

Does anyone use such a tool recently, or know how to get such statistics?

Thanks,
—Yan.

Important: deadlines

Hi all,

This is an important announcement (and/or reminder) about the international jury process. Like every year, there is a jury with a mix of Photography, Heritage and Wikimedian backgrounds that will decide what image will win the international finale. I will announce the jury members on the WLM website once the last jury members are confirmed.

Each national competition gets to nominate up to 10 images - usually these are your top-10 images. Please send me a list of 10 URL's to the file description pages of the images that are nominated for the international finale with at least one member of your national jury in cc. They do not have to be in order.

We will keep that list secret until you announce them publicly. If you announced your winners publicly, please add your 10 nominees on this page: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015_winners We will however include all pictures that win internationally in our jury report (usually the top-25 is published), which will be published by the beginning of december. 

If you have any questions, please let me know. 
Thank you.

Lodewijk
(coordinator of the international jury process this year)

Opensourcing the Jury Tool?

Hi all,

From WM-ES (and I guess that from many other chapters) we'd like to customize the tool and include new options and workflows. I assume that Ilya could develop them also but the open source model is definitelly more flexible and creates much more synergies that a purely closed model.

Is that possible to open source the code and let other chapters to enhance and customize the tool. Enhancements could be added to the main branch and thus the result would be even better.

Opinions?

Best regards

  // M.A.

WLM Pakistan - winners

Hello all,


Comparing with last two contest WLMP 2014 and WLE Pakistan 2015, performance in this contest was too poor.
