Hi all,

We have launched a new guide on how to implement a Wikimedia program: Photo
Contests and Events toolkit is now live! This is a work in progress, and we
look forward to community members actively contributing to what is outlined
in the toolkit. As I frequently see this list is a great hub for exchanging
knowledge around common challenges and struggles running Wiki Loves
Monuments, I wanted to share this with you all. Please share more broadly
to other lists that you think might benefit, or would be a good platform to
find other contributors.

Some of the gaps are in the Plan subpage, on How to choose the best program
for your community, and planning award ceremonies and follow up events. On
the Run tab, there is a gap on how to help photographers improve their
skills. Beyond these, all sections can be expanded and edited, and we look
forward to community members contributing what they know!

Explore (and contribute to) this step-by-step guide to run your first
event, find ideas to remix popular photo competitions, and locate useful
bots and templates to make the most out of your photo event. The new
toolkit has an improved design, optimized for mobile, that also shares
learning patterns with less clicks involved. Find experienced program
leaders on the Connect tab [1], and create a profile to offer your
expertise to others. We want to thank all the community members who offered
their knowledge to create this new toolkit, and we look forward to have
this tool expanded by wikimedians all over the world.

As we have heard the feedback from community members, this tool will be
translated soon.

Looking forward to your edits!
