> Hi all,
> Wiki Loves Monuments international team is excited to share the
> following news with you:
> Flickr [1] and Wiki Loves Monuments will work together to encourage
> and facilitate the contributions by Flickr photographers to Wiki Loves
> Monuments 2017. Here is the rough sketch of how this collaboration
> will work (more details will be provided on this list as we learn more
> but also as we run into questions that we'd like to answer with you):
> * Flickr is going to use their Worldwide Photowalk Group [2] to host
> images and invite photographers to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments
> 2017.
> * This week they will publish a blog post on the Flickr Blog/social
> and update the group with a call to action for photographers to begin
> organizing independent meetup events/walks in their location in
> September. They will be closely following the sign-ups for countries
> participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 [3]. Please help us by
> keeping that page updated.
> * Organizers will create Facebook events with specific details and
> monuments the attendees will photograph. Flickr will host a master
> list broken down by continent/country in a Group Discussion.
> * They will open the Group for photo submissions in September to
> officially launch the month and in sync with each country's opening
> and closing time and date of campaigns.
> * Flickr will post each week with their favorite images in the group
> (blog + social + galleries) to continue encouraging
> participation/submissions.
> * When we say "organizer" in above points, we are referring to group
> organizers on Flickr end. If country organizers on our end would like
> to get more involved with Flickr photographers, we'd support and
> encourage that but local organizers on either side shouldn't feel
> pressured to do so. :)
> For a list of things we should do, please read [4].
> In the past, the photowalks have been pretty popular [5] and both
> sides are looking forward to welcoming new cities as part of this Wiki
> Loves Monuments season.
> We are very happy that Flickr is working with us and our communities
> through Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 and we hope that the experience of
> this year provides more opportunities for the two communities to
> collaborate more in the future.
> Questions and comments are welcome.
> Best,
> Lily

> On our end, we will need to do the following:
> * Workout how to keep the local organizers updated about the
> submissions on Flickr end as the contest is moving forward.
> * Create a bot that will call a Flickr API at the end (or at specific
> intervals) of the contest to import photos from Flickr to Commons. We
> should communicate with Flickr what exact information they should make
> sure gets collected and served via the API. (country code, monuments
> ID, name/id of the photographers, license, photo, ...)
> * Licenses accepted.
> * [optional] A mapping tool such as Monumental is something
> photographers will appreciate a lot. :)
> * and more
