Wikimedia Indonesia organized Wikisource Competition 2021, the third competition involving Wikisource project in Indonesia. The contest started on April 15 to April 30, 2021 and participated by 40 participants. There were at least 17 books provided to be proofread, which all of them are already in public domain.
Two most contributed participants were awarded special prizes, and tokens were given to those who have proofread at least 12 pages during the contest. Unlike the previous Wikisource contest, this year, the winners are all women, beating more than 35 others. We are glad to see more participants who are trying to make a try to edit in Wikisource, which is one of the objectives of this contest.

Museum Daerah Deli Serdang is now on Commons
Museum Daerah Deli Serdang, a local museum in Deli Serdang, opened their collections to Wikimedia Commons. This effort has been started last year but yet realized due to COVID-19 pandemic wave in Indonesia, forcing them to temporary close the institution. This year, thanks to online training conducted by GLAM Indonesia, they were able to upload their collections to Commons gradually.
Museum Daerah Deli Serdang is the 17th GLAM institution of Indonesia opened their collections to Commons by the help of Wikimedia Indonesia. A complete list of cooperation can be seen at this webpage. We will continue to approach more institutions and ensure the contents of Indonesia are available freely in the Wikimedia projects.
