Organizing the Wiki Loves Monuments World Exhibition 2013

Hello all of you,

Winners on tour:  the 13 motives in the international WLM Calendar will
tour as a foto exhibition trough the world probably celebrating the
finissage in Hongkong parallel tot he Wikimania 2013 in August. The general
coordination will be done through the WLM international team.

Please insert your
if You would like to host the exhibition. Please remark that I am not the
best table constructor in Wkimedia. Please feel free to give me a hand ;)

Further information:

Lately we have been in touch with some printing house to find a sponsor for
the calendars. We did find one as You know, but we also find a printing
house ready to print in high quality and good price the 12 winners (a.o.)
on *alu-dibond* in an exhibition format like A1 (594 × 841 cm). And first
research on shipping costs let us come to the conclusion, that we could
have an exhibition tour with the winner - motive hosted by local partners.

As an example:

Wikimedia Austria does have the Bundes Denkmalamt as partner. Would they
like to host for two weeks in the coming year and than send it further to
the next exhibition site previewed? The exhibition would be ready for show
and delivered in two boxes including the labels to each image and the
shipping papers.

We do consider this idea a nice opportunity to show to a broader public our
achievements and to deepen the contact with local partners. It might even
help to prepare the ground for a coming Wiki loves Monuments edition 2013.

*Time line:*

Start of the Tour: not before December 2012

End of the Tour August 2013 likly in Hongkong (scheduled date for the

Taken in account that the exhibition should stay at least 10 - 14 days at
each station and shipping might take some time, we could have 6 to 8
stations all together. WLM international would be able to finance the
production of the photo plates, boxes and stand for the shipping costs (up
to a certain amount). We could help with a press advisory and layouts for
promotion material. But we need Your help to find local partners.

The partner will host the exhibition and stand for promotion and press
work. Would You like to check with your partners, how they like the idea?

 Curious for Your plans!
