Re: Help with members for a Jury

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Will work on cutting down the number of images before handing over to a jury. Lots of the images are kinda 'garbage', (i.e images with low resolution, some even mere 50kb etc.)

In 2012, there was a tool used to sort and select images out of a category. I hope a tool of that sort still exists.

Hi, I'm rexford, from ghana.

Late last year, WLA[1] was organized. ghana uploaded some 800 images[2]. We're looking for a jury to select the best 5 images.

Myself can't be a part of jury, same as others on our team, because we took part in the event.

We'll really appreciate if we could get volunteers to help in selecting the best images from this community.

Thanks.

2015: who will be in the international team?

Hello all,

The beginning of a new year is close, and we should start in January with a team to organise Wiki Loves Monuments 2015. So the question is:

Who is interested in joining the international team?

Requirements:
* You have organized Wiki Loves Monuments in one or more earlier years in your country (or a similar contest)
* You have the time to commit yourself from January to December 2015 to organize Wiki Loves Monuments in a team. We have monthly meetings with in the weeks before the actual contest a weekly meeting.

What the international team does:
* The team helps local teams with answers, advice, and communicates about what is expected and what deadlines there are.
* Creates lists of monuments
* Maintains a monument database
* Requests and has a budget
* Searches for sponsors
* Chooses prizes
* Sends survey
* Creates a calendar?
* Does the reporting
and a lot more...

For 2015 we should aim for reaching out to all the countries/areas where a team has participated in earlier years, to reach out to chapters and user groups who haven't organized it before, and to reach out to Wikipedia communities which have no chapter and no experience in organisation but do want to do this. There are still a lot of countries without lists of monuments on Wikipedia,

So if you commit your enthousiasm and your time to the team, be welcome!

Let us know!

Kind regards,

Romaine

In that case if anyone wants to help the international team, it's a good
idea to start now :) we still have things to do this year, and the person
could get some understanding for next year (assuming they hadn't previously
been part of the team).

A few thoughts regarding the international team:

1. Can a national organizer be part of the international team?  Years
ago we don't like this because of possible conflict of interest.  But
what we learned from WLM2014 is that we need more people and we want
them to act faster.  Can all participating countries send [at least?]
one representative to help with the international team?  If there are
too many people, the tasks can be delegated to a group or an
individual.

2. Can we share the resource/expertise with WLE as much as possible?
In other words, the team itself and the submission/processing/judging
mechanism may be common for both contests.  If the committee/process
are common, you can add the third/4th/... topic and go beyond the
saturation stage of S-curve.  This may address many of us who believe
that WLM for Europe is in contraction phase.

3. This is about the right time to discuss about international team if
we want a fruitful contest in 2015.  I believe that there is a
significant potential for growth for people to take photo from
October-August.  Uploading existing photos is one thing but taking it
purposefully for this competition is another.  The earlier we have the
team the better we can work on our PR campaign.

Hi Kaew.

Yes, ofcos a national organiser be part of the international. I also agree
that we need more members, but I also believe too many cooks will spoil the
food. The reach decisions much quicker, I think we need to limit the number
of members we can include in.

​However. in the international team, we can have one member per region;
maybe 1 from North Am, One from South Am, One/two from Europe , One from
Middle East, One from South Asia and so on. ​In my experience, that helps
because there the representative gets closer to the organising team of
those countries.

Completely agreed, we should share resources with WLE and WLPA. It will
benefit all.




Regards from Mumbai,
Karthik Nadar.

Call for Volunteers - WLM International Team

Dear all,

We shall need a good international team to have another successful version of Wiki Loves Monuments after 2014. The team should comprise of experience volunteers who have conducted WLM or any such event in their country. 

There are numerous tasks and first task will be to hunt and find our countries who shall be willing to organise Wiki Loves Monuments again. To brief, the International Team is more of coordinating with all participating countries and without proper coordination, there will be no international competition for WLM 2015. 

Been in the international team is also more of applying for grant, documenting, following up and keeping track of status of all participating countries. Time to be spent may vary according to the skill of team members; more the skills and people, lesser the burden; however you can assume 10 hours a week during the contest (just horrifying). 

Would you be interested to be part of international team for WLM 2015, please send me a brief introduction of yourself and also a note on how you would benefit the international team. Please send the same by 6th of Jan. 



Regards from Mumbai,
Karthik Nadar.

Blog post & jury report

Hi all,

As you all noticed, the international results have been announced! I didn't hear back from jury members yet whether they will prepare a jury report, but that would be nice too...

However, something everyone could basically do, it writing an awesome blog post about the winning pictures! Who dares? We have wikilovesmonuments.org still without the results :)

Thanks!

Lodewijk

Fwd: Winners Announced in World’s Largest Photo Contest: Wiki Loves Monuments

FYI. We just posted the announcement. You are welcome to share locally with your press contacts (especially the countries on the first places!)

----

This press release is also available online here: https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Press_releases/Winners_Announced_in_World%E2%80%99s_Largest_Photo_Contest:_Wiki_Loves_Monuments


Winners Announced in World’s Largest Photo Contest: Wiki Loves Monuments

International jury selects top 10 photos from more than 321,000 worldwide. Over the four past years, more than 1.1 million images have been submitted to the contest.

The international jury for Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 announced today the 10 winning photographs from the world’s largest photo contest, which ran from September 1 - 30 this year. More than 9,000 photographers uploaded over 321,000 freely-licensed photographs of historic buildings, monuments and cultural heritage sites in 41 countries to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects.

This year, the grand-prize winning photograph is an image of the Holy Mountains Monastery, a complex of architectural monuments of national significance in Sviatohirsk, Ukraine, taken by Konstantin Brizhnichenko. The first written mention of the monastery was in 1526. In 1624, the monastery was officially recognized as the Sviatohirsk Uspensky Monastery. Before World War I, the monastery was inhabited by approximately 600 monks. During the 1930s, it was destroyed by the Soviets, along with other numerous religious sites throughout the Soviet Union. Today, the monastery community consists of more than 100 people, a number that increases each year.

The winner will receive flight and accommodations in Mexico to attend Wikimania, the international conference of the Wikimedia movement, to be held in July 2015 in Mexico City.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Wiki Loves Monuments is the world’s largest public photo competition. In it, people are asked to take pictures of monuments from participating countries and to upload them to Wikimedia Commons, enabling the photos to be used to illustrate Wikipedia in articles about these monuments and other subjects.

“With over one million free images of heritage sites across the world, Wiki Loves Monuments is one of the world’s most important history projects today,” says Deror Lin, the international coordinator of the competition. “Year after year, volunteers document hundreds of thousands of heritage sites across the world and upload the images to the internet under a free license for the benefit of the current andnext generations. These people display the splendor of creativity and culture in their countries.”

The competition is organized in 41 participating countries, each focusing on their national monuments and with their own national prizes. This year, every participating country submitted 10 nominations to the international jury who chose the winning pictures for the competition. A number of countries participated in the competition for the first time, including: Albania, Kosovo, Iraq, Ireland, Lebanon, Macedonia, Pakistan and the Palestinian Authority.


The contest was first organized in 2010 in the Netherlands and resulted in more than 12,500 pictures of Dutch monuments. Over the past four years more than 1.1 million images have been submitted to the contest.

Join the Grant Advisory Committee

Hello Everyone!

We're sending out a call for new Grant Advisory Committee (GAC) members!

The GAC are community volunteers who are explicitly invited[1] to review and evaluate grant proposals made in the Wikimedia Foundation Project and Event Grants Program[2], and offer advice to both grant applicants and the Foundation.

We review a large number of WLM and other Wiki Loves proposals each year. It would be great to have more experts in this area on the committee!

Read all about it on the Candidates page[3]. The deadline for signing up for this round is December 30, 2014, so be sure to step forward before then. New members will be inducted by the middle of January 2015.

Please help this message reach as many people as possible, by relaying it to appropriate lists and village pumps. 

And many thanks to our current and former GAC members[4]!

Cheers,

Alex
