Thank you so much Susana! Looks wonderful. Could you upload it to commons
(if not done yet)?

Maybe we should collect this kind of material more :)



ps: I see a lot of partners down there, wonderful work! I would really
appreciate it if someone could (in a seperate thread) give a short update on
where you are :)

>>>>> 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!
