Special prize for St. James Way in 2015

Hello. Last year, Wikimedia Spain had a collaboration with an association of friends of the French St. James Way. That partner provided books as prizes for a special category of WLM contest.[1] It seems that this year they will be partners too, and we could look for more different partners for that.

Maybe there could be a special prize for St. James Way at an international level, because St. James Way is present in different European countries. For example, the Way is present also in England, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Switzerland, Italy or Portugal. Besides, the Way in Spain and France is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.[2][3] This is only an idea, so, please feel free to say your opinion.

Last week we run an edit-a-thon in Jaca about the Fench St. James Way in Aragon, and during WMCON, I could talk with Anne-Laure Prévost, of Wikimedia France, about starting a project related with this.

Regards

Santi Navarro

Communist monuments in Ukraine

Hi all;

In the past years, monuments related to communism in Ukraine have been damaged or destroyed. During Euromaidan protests that was increased, with many examples of destroyed sculptures.[1]

I have heard in the news that many more monuments are going to be removed soon by law. I know that it is a controversial topic in Ukraine, but probably we won't be able to take pictures of these monuments anymore.

Is anyone interested on this topic?

Regards

Wikimedia NYC will probably look to do its wiki-photography contest this
year in October rather than September, to cooperate locally with the
'Archtober' program:

http://www.archtober.org/

Also, it would probably be focused more on architecture at large, rather
than just designated historic sites.

Is there a way we can still have a relationship of some kind with the WLM
international campaign for this year?

Thanks,
Pharos

WLM and Other photo events Evaluation Reports 2015: join the conversation!

TL;DR: The Learning and Evaluation team at Wikimedia Foundation has released the first Programs Reports for Wiki Loves Monuments [1] and Other Photo Events [2]. Learn more about how these programs deliver against the set goals and comment on what next steps should be! Join the event on Wed May 6 [3]


Hi all,


The Learning and Evaluation team at Wikimedia Foundation is happy to launch the first two Wikimedia programs reports 2015: Wiki Loves Monuments [1] and Other Photo Events [2]. As many of you know, the reports are the result of a collaborative effort that brings together program leaders across the movement and the L&E team, to better understand the impact Wikimedia programs have online and offline.


Highlights of the first reports include that media uploaded to Wikimedia Commons as part of the Wiki Loves Monuments and other photo events (from September 2013 to September 2014) represent 14% of the media uploaded to Commons and media uploaded are used in articles at five times the rate of other media uploaded during the same time period. Read the reports to understand how many new users are introduced to wiki projects through these programs, to learn about user retention, and to see how effective photo events are at expanding and improving content on Wikimedia projects. Unlike the beta reports, these new deliveries includes a new section: «How this info can apply to program planning», in the section «Key Findings», to help program leaders make the most of these reports.


In addition to these two reports, we've published an overview report on the state of program evaluation and reporting. Specifically, the section Evaluation Initiative [4] will give readers a snapshot on the state of learning and evaluation in the movement.


We have come a long way, and we want to thank everyone who has been involved in different parts of this initiative and especially those who shared data with us! We still have a lot of work to approach together. We need program leaders ideas and views to explore possible next steps. Some potential areas for further investigation of Other Photo Events and Wiki Loves Monuments are:

  • Do different types of photo events attract different types of users?

  • How can we apply the successes of low-cost, low-scale events to other contexts?


Join the conversation on the Talk Page of both reports. Additionally, we will host an event to present the reports and discuss them on Wednesday, May 6, at 1500 UTC. We have heard back from some program leaders that will not be able to make it, but as many of you know, it is hard to find a time that works across the movement. We are unable to move this virtual event, but it will be recorded and available for the public and commenting afterwards. Join the event here:

https://plus.google.com/events/cvc3orpmngdoac8019dvei1tcu8


Watch for the next Wikimedia Programs Reports, including:

  • On-wiki Writing Contest

  • GLAM Content donations

  • Editathons

  • Editing Workshops

  • Wikipedia Education Program

  • Conferences

  • Hackathons

  • Wikipedians in Residence

'evaluation'

Hi all,

it seems that the WMF evaluation department has once again put together an evaluation of Wiki Loves Monuments. Out of curiosity, were any of the organizers involved in this? A quick glance suggests some factual errors, and again a big focus on assuming WLM is a consistent project, that is similar in each country (while in reality it is a diverse collection of projects, tailored to the needs of each country, by its community) and with a focus towards number crunching. 

Statements that begin with 'the average Wiki Loves Monuments implementation/contest' make my eyes bleed... Did anyone make a more thorough analysis of the report? 

Best,
Lodewijk

Hello,

Last week, the volunteers of WMNL had a meeting and decided we're in for
the competition of 2015. We are going to look for sponsors for our prices
and continue to work on the municipal lists for Wikipedia.

We are looking forward to another great competition!

Hi Ciell,

Thanks for sharing!

I added the Netherlands to
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015/Participating_countries

I noted that there is still very little infrastructure, and nobody has
indicated they want to join the international team yet. I definitely hope
this quickly changes, otherwise we'll end up with a lot of chaos again.

Best,
Lodewijk

The Netherlands is joining for 2015!

Hello,

Last week, the volunteers of WMNL had a meeting and decided we're in for the competition of 2015. We are going to look for sponsors for our prices and continue to work on the municipal lists for Wikipedia.

We are looking forward to another great competition!

Cheers, Ciell

draft article for Heritage in Motion

Hi all,

because of the 5th edition and 1 millionth submission to WLM past year, it seemed a nice idea to write a short article for Heritage in motion about Wiki Loves Monuments. 

Unfortunately, the deadline is rather short. Please find a draft below. If you have comments, edits, suggestions, they are still very welcome in the coming 23 hours. I would especially appreciate suggestions to make it read more like 'fun' and less like 'numbers'. 

Best,
Lodewijk

While celebrating its fifth edition, the international photography competition Wiki Loves Monuments welcomed its millionth image submission. A good occasion to take a look at the past editions of the competition that has been supported by Europa Nostra as a partner since 2011, and take a look where it is headed. 

In 2010, the competition was initiated by Wikimedia Netherlands as a challenge to appreciate, photograph and share monumental buildings in their environment with the rest of the world through Wikipedia. Over twelve thousand photos were submitted through the competition, and consequently shared through Wikimedia Commons, the media repository behind Wikipedia. In the years that followed, the competition was organized by Wikimedia volunteers in dozens of other countries: first in Europe (2011), later in the whole world (since 2012). Wiki Loves Monuments was recognized as the worlds largest photography competition by the Guinness Book of World Records with over 300.000 submissions each year since 2012.  Over the past five editions, a total of 1,2 million photos was submitted to the competition from 65 countries. 

More than just a competition
Alongside the competition, data describing the officially recognized cultural heritage monuments has been collected by Wikipedia volunteers: a database was composed with more than 1,3 million buildings in 53 countries, of which more than 450.000 now have an image linked to them. All submitted images are, together with more uploaded images of cultural heritage monuments, available through Wikimedia Commons[1]. All images can be used freely, as long as the author and license are credited. 

Images can be used by anyone, but are also actively added to articles on Wikipedia, one of the world's most popular sources of information. As a heritage ambassador, you can contribute in many different ways to this wealth of material: you can release and upload your own photographic material, as long as you use a free license, or contribute articles to Wikipedia about the heritage sites. That way, we can share the beautiful heritage sites that Europe has to offer with every single person. If you are interested, please get in touch with a local chapter of Wikimedians in your country for more information[2], or just start editing Wikipedia.

We hope to welcome you as participant in the 2015 competition!

<did you know box>
Did you know...
- that most of the photo submissions in the past years came from Ukraine, Poland and Germany?
- that even Antarctica participated in 2013, with 22 submitted photos?
- that in Italy, Greece and Egypt, publishing photos of monuments may require government permission?
