Presence of Museums in Wiki Projects
In line with the theme of International Museum Day 2021, following the initiative of the International Council of Museums Switzerland and Wikimedia Foundation, joined by other European countries, the ICOM National Committee of Armenian Museums in partnership with Wikimedia Armenia Scientific and Educational NGO initiated an editing competition on the topic of “Presence of Museums in WikiProjects” and a training course on Wikipedia.
The competition was held on May 3-18; the museum staff wrote articles about their museums, museum persons, and exhibits, and the other participants translated articles from the presented lists.
Forty-one participants took part in the competition. Four online training courses explaining the details of wiki editing were held for about 20 new participants.
During the 15 days of the competition, 283 articles were edited with a total volume of 2,526,245 bytes.
The results will be summarized two weeks after the end of the competition. The participants will receive certificates, and the top five editors will receive rewards from the ICOM National Committee of Armenian Museums
