Dear All,

I am delighted to announce on behalf of the Wikimedia Polska Association
that this week we have finally signed an official agreement on
partnership and cooperation with the National Heritage Board of Poland
(NHB), which is the main state institution dealing with protection of
cultural heritage monuments in the country. Wiki Loves Monuments is now
under an Honorary Patronage of the Board (yay!).

Both parties to the agreement have obliged themselves, for instance, to
inform about each other's projects; thanks to that obligation, news on
Wiki Loves Monuments will be published on the NHB's homepage
(<http://www.nid.pl>) and information about the project will be printed
on all advertisement materials (posters, leaflets, invitations etc.)
produced for the European Heritage Days.

Moreover, in accordance with the agreement, we have received the full
registry of monuments in Poland which will uploaded on Wikipedia in
(most probably) a few days' time. I believe this to be an amazing
milestone for our Wikiproject.

The Wikiproject itself has significantly developed since our meeting in
Berlin and now we have 40 *active* and enthusiastic members who are
working on our lists of monuments, adding coordinates and pictures --
this makes us the most active Wikiproject of the Polish Wikipedia.

Furthermore, we have prepared a yet-unfinished category tree on
Wikimedia Commons
as well as a categorisation template with a full English translation

We are also in the process of securing a media patronage and,
hopefully!, an Honorary Patronage of the Ministry of Culture and
National Heritage, for which an answer we should receive in the next few

That would be it, if anyone has any questions, I am more than happy to
answer them.
