As I said in first posting
1) pictures that are allowed for local Wikipedia should be eligible
for WLM local competition. Keep It Simple Stupid principle for local
participiants -- they should not know the details about Freedom of
Panorama in local Copyright Law.
2) And pictures that are allowed to Commons are only eligble for
pan-European WLM competition.
If the 1 and 2 don't match, then the additional technical complexity
will be up to local organisers to handle.
