In August, and until September, started Wiki Loves the Olympics, an online editing contest around the Olympic Games. The goal of this first edition is to improve and translate a list of topics related to the Olympic Games, and specially the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2016 Summer Paralympics, including famous sports figures and games facilities. The initiative is part of Iberocoop.
Also, on August 22, we signed an agreement with the city council of San Sebastian de los Reyes (Madrid) to sponsor the contest Wiki Loves Folk. As part of the agreement, a special prize for the best photos of the festivals of San Sebastián de los Reyes was created, and an additional uploading period is opened between August 25 and September 5, together with April and November-December.
Royal Spanish Academy and others institutions
We had two productive meetings, with the Ciudad y el Mar, Castillo de Mata Museum, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, to talk about a coming editathon in October and photograph some documents from his collection, and with the city council of Bimenes (Asturias), to initiate a collaboration in the coming months, including GLAM-related activities. Finally, as part of the collaboration with the Royal Spanish Academy, we have uploaded, under a free license, the first images from its collection.
