GLAMing Madrid and Wiki Loves contests
Wikipedia training session at National Archaeological Museum
In December, GLAMing Madrid project continued. In this month were held 6 Wikipedia training sessions open to the public in the three museums. As well, another 3 Wikipedia training sessions and talks were held for the staff of the three museums.
As part of the collaboration, from December 14 until January 14, a writing contest about the three museums and their collections is running. Due to the importance of these institutions in conservation, documentation and diffusion of the historical and artistic Spanish heritage, we seek to create or improve articles in both Wikipedia and Wikidata about the three institutions, their collections and personalities related to them. Also, in December nearly 400 images donated by the museums were ready to be uploaded.
WLM and WLE awards ceremony
On December 5, we celebrated the Wiki Loves Earth and Wiki Loves Monuments Spain 2015 Awards Ceremony WLM and WLE 2015 awards ceremony in Seville. Firstly Diego Delso gave a talk about Wikimedia Commons, how to use, categorize and upload images, and then such awards were presented.
Wiki Loves Folk
Wiki Loves Folk (WLF) is a public photo competition around folklore, organized by Wikimedia Spain. In line with the celebration of other Wiki Loves contests, another important aspect of the culture of a country or territory is its folklore. Along with its monumental or natural wealth, Spain has a rich and varied folklore worth to value; for that reason, in 2016 we organize this new contest, focusing on this type of cultural heritage.
We propose the promotion of those celebrations or traditions (religious celebrations, carnivals, festivals, food festivals) that have any of the following statements: International Touristic Interest, National Touristic Interest, Regional Touristic Interest and Provincial Touristic Interest. As part of the preparations, from December 10 to January 31 a public logo competition is running for select the WLF logo.
