In November Wikimedia Spain has collaborated in organizing two edit-a-thons; the first one was celebrated in November 5 and focused on Canary fortifications. It was organized by the Ciudad y el Mar, Castillo de Mata Museum, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The second one was held at the Energy Museum, in Ponferrada. It was carried out in November 12 and focused on the history of the museum (a former thermal power plant) and mining in the Bierzo shire. Both were covered by the press, radio and television, achieving an outstanding visibility at the local level.
For the second consecutive year, Wikimedia Spain organized a Wikipedia course at the library of the campus La Yutera, in Palencia, belonging to the Valladolid University. During four sessions, the participants have learnt what Wikipedia is, the basic notions of editing, and have created their first articles.
Wiki Loves Folk & others
Wikimedia Spain continues organizing Wiki Loves Folk, a public photo contest around folklore. After the two first periods of participation in April and August, between November and December is opened the third and last period for uploading pictures. We hope to know the winners at the end of the year.
In November, Wikimedia Spain covered five events for obtaining free pictures: the Medium-length Films International Festival of Valencia, the rally Ribeira Sacra, an international handball match between the national teams of Spain and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and two DJ events in Madrid.
