Hi all,

We have started a poster for the portuguese competition (sending you in
JPG). Does it help in any way?

>> Hi Nicole,
>> The text we have currently is limited to what we wrote on the etherpad in
>> Berlin, and of course our ad that Hay made (it is on page 53 of Europa
>> Nostra's summer edition of the European Cultural Heritage Review).
>> The text is here
>> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2011/May_Meeting/Notes/Europa_Nostra
>> The printable pdf is here
>> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/17/Wikilovesmonuments-europanostra-ad.pdf
>> I don't know if you saw Julia's earlier query on this. Right now all of
>> our up-to-date info is here:
>> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2011
>> <http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2011>I
>> myself have been thinking hard about what the text should be, and last
>> Thursday, Austin Hair and I stood behind a table at the Europa Nostra fair
>> in Amsterdam. It was an interesting afternoon, since a lot of people came to
>> the table with questions that I would never have dreamed of beforehand, such
>> as whether I knew about the publicly accessible databases on threatened
>> monuments, or on monuments in ultra-hard-to-get-to-places, or similar
>> things. I did my best to get people interested in Wiki Loves Monuments and
>> the Dutch WP10 birthday celebration this Saturday (though most people coming
>> to the booth didn't speak Dutch). I printed out all of the winning photos,
>> plus a few Wikipedia logos (the WLM logo, the puzzle one, the Wikmedia one,
>> the Commons one, and the WP10 one). I also had printed out a short
>> explanation how to uplaod a photo, and the jury report from last year. There
>> were several photographers who came to the booth and wanted to know what the
>> judging criteria were.
>> I was sorry I didn't have any flyers, since people really seemed to want
>> this. Fortunately the booth across from us was giving away the Heritage
>> magazines, so I told them to bookmark page 53.
>> I was very happy that I hadn't yet had a chance to give Tomasz's Wikibook
>> on Chopin to Ziko, because I was using it as a paperweight (we were outside
>> and it was quite windy). Many people commented on the book and were
>> impressed that "we" at Wikipedia knew that Chopin was Polish. Fortunately
>> there was a delegation from Poland who were attracted by the book and after
>> looking at all the winning pictures got very excited. There was also a
>> fairly large group of students from the Reinwardt academy in Amsterdam
>> interested in architecture, many of whom have tons of pictures they could
>> upload. I realized quite quickly however that it starts sounding very
>> complicated when you talk about uploading groups of photos to Wikimedia
>> Commons. That is definitely not the right approach for a casual computer
>> user, which most of these people were.
>> The ten winning pictures did get a lot of attention, and when I explained
>> that each of these is linked to an article on the Dutch Wikipedia, people
>> seemed eager to learn more. The photo that got the most attention was the
>> electricity transformer station.
>> So to summarize, I think the main thing to focus on is the result we hope
>> to achieve with the contest, namely to gather lots of freely accessible
>> photos of monuments for use in Wikipedia articles. The best way to get
>> people to understand what this means is to pick a nice monument photo (or
>> choose one of the winning ones from last year) and make sure it is linked to
>> an article on the native Wikipedia. Then you can use that link to send to
>> people in emails.
>> This page has the links to Dutch articles with the winning photos:
>> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2010
>> <http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2010>A
>> nice teaser for the upcoming would be to say how nice it would be to have
>> pictures on Commons of nearby monuments that aren't there yet. It would also
>> be nice if more people participated who lived in rural areas, since those
>> monuments have the least photos on Commons.
>> Secondary information that is crucial to have is the criteria for judging
>> the photos (everyone seemed interested in that) and the method used to
>> upload the photos (especially the older people seemed very skeptical about
>> being able to do this, though they seemed quite interested).
>> Hope it gets all of you thinking!

>>> Hi all,
>>> I am not sure how the status is here, so please excuse if this was
>>> already discussed,
>>> We are planning to create info flyers for participants, partners, and
>>> other target groups of the contest. In my opinion, it would be best to
>>> have one international flyer and then adapt it to all other
>>> languages/countries.
>>> Wikimedia Deutschland could take care of all the design and printing
>>> stuff, if some of you can provide texts, images and all necessary
>>> information. What do you think?
>>> Best,
