We usually organise an action to use pictures from WLM right after the
contest in order to keep uploaders with us. This is also a kind of
contest with some small gifts for people who will use the highest
number of pictures. Our tables we filled with pictures mainly
atuomatically using bot, and the wikipedian were only asked to check
the bot work and fix bugs.

> Hi all,
> During Wiki Loves Monuments, thousands of monuments have already been
> uploaded and that is amazing! It's nice to have a lot of images of monuments
> on Wikimedia Commons, but it's even nicer to also have these images in use
> on Wikipedia. You can help by adding these unused images to the lists on
> Wikipedia.
> All uploaded images should contain the 'unique identifier' by which you can
> identify a monument in your country. Thanks to this information, Erfgoedbot
> recognizes which images belong to monuments that do not have a picture yet
> in the monument lists on Wikipedia. Erfgoedbot reports these images on the
> 'unused images' page dedicated to your country-language combination,
> together with a link to the exact monument list this image should be placed
> in.
> An overview of all 'unused images' reporting pages is maintained on
> https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Monuments_database/Unused_images
> , which also explains how to use those pages. If you find a mistake, have a
> question or just want to say how much you like this tool, you can use the
> talkpage attached to this overview page. The overview also reports which
> language-country combinations have the most images that could be inserted
> into a monument list. Currently the countries that require most attention
> are:
> * Russia in Russian - 22,334 unused images (because they recently created
> the list, there's a bit of a backlog, so this is understandable)
> * Ukraine in Ukrainian - 5,500 unused images
> * Flanders (Belgium) in French - 3100 images
> * Poland in Polish - 2300 images (lots of uploads!)
> * Flanders (Belgium) in Dutch - 2100 images
> * Armenia in Armenian - 1900 images
> * Israel in Hebrew - 1200 images (and their competition hasn't even started
> yet!)
> * Switzerland in German - 800 images
> Good luck with processing this, and please put a note on the talkpage if you
> need help understanding something. It might make sense to ask some more
> community members to jump in, if you can't manage by yourself. The lists are
> updated daily so you probably want to put "your" list on your watchlist so
> you can keep up.
