Wiki Loves Monuments
In 2017 was the 7th edition of Wiki Loves Monuments in France and the dynamic is still very strong. 9501 photos have been uploaded by 358 contributors, 61% of them being new contributors. After 4 years of decline, the figures are going up again: +23% of images and +19% of participants.

The top 10 has been chosen and will soon be revealed.
There has been two Opérations Libres in October, one in Bretagne and in Occitanie the week after. An Opération Libre is a 48h hackathon where contributors from free projects (like Wikimedia but also OpenStreetMap or OpenData plateform, etc.) collect and release contents with the help of the inhabitants and local institutions. It is quite fun and it's a good opportunity to share with allies in others communities and to engage with the public.
