Cape Town Wiki Loves Monuments edit-a-thon
Wikimedia South Africa will be hosting an edit-a-thon to encourage people to use the photographs take during Wiki Loves Monuments over the years on Wikipedia. As you might well know the Wiki Loves Monuments competition has generated thousands of pictures of South African heritage locations and hundreds of thousands of pictures of heritage sites around the world. Very few of them are currently used on Wikipedia.
As such we created a special prize for "best use on Wikipedia" for a site anywhere in South Africa this year totalling R3,000 and the same prize category for a site in the Western Cape totalling R4,000. The cut off deadline to apply this this prize category is the 7th November 2015. The edit-a-thon is a great opportunity to enter this event and learn more about how to maximise your contributions to Wikipedia using Wiki Loves Monuments photographs.
- Date: Saturday, 24th October 2015
- Time: 10:00 - 15:00 (people are free to come and go at any time between 10am and 3pm)
- Location: TwentyFifty, 2nd Floor, 8 Spin Street, Cape Town.
You will need to bring your own computer/notebook/device to edit Wikipedia on. Unfortunately the host site does not offer free standing computers.
We will be serving food and refreshments on the day. It important to keep Wikipedia editors well fed.
