Wikimedians to the Games

Press Passes

After a contributor has published one or more articles related to the Australian Paralympic movement on Wikinews or had one or more items featured on Wikipedia's “In the News”, or had an image they took related to Australian Paralympic sport featured on Wikimedia Commons or Wikipedia, they can request a press pass to attend Australian Paralympic related events. While the APC cannot guarantee a press pass to all applicants, it will make every effort to secure passes for contributors to this project. To request a press pass, please contact Tony Naar.

Photo Requests

The Australian Paralympic Committee has a number of photos that it is in the process of scanning and uploading to Wikimedia Commons. Contributors may request pictures to help illustrate Good Articles, Featured Articles, and Featured Lists. If an image exists, an effort will be made to prioritise the scanning of this material. Please ask on our mailing list, or by e-mailing us.

National Sport Information Centre

The National Sport Information Centre (NSIC) in Canberra has books, journals, magazines, government reports, annual reports and Paralympic scrapbooks that are not available online. This content is often listed in the catalogue of the NSIC. Upon request for specific materials, the material can be scanned and e-mailed to the contributor. The material can also be copied and snail mailed to an individual. The National Sport Information Centre also has a large selection of videos. Contributors will be given access to these videos and will be allowed to watch them at the NSIC.
