I learned about nice tradition in Polish Wikipedia: users gallery
which may contain humorous connotations.
I think such descriptions are great way to keep history of project as
well as a chance for newbies to learn about old timers.
Unfortunately Commons was created long time ago and many prominent
contributors are covered by fog of time.
Today at 1 July the photo contest Wiki Loves Public Space started in
Belgium. This year is the first year in what we have during the full
of panorama <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_panorama> in Belgium (
info <https://be.wikimedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_panorama>), which means that
modern buildings and artworks in the public space can be photographed and
freely be published. For years it was not possible to illustrate articles
with photos of modern buildings and artworks in the public space due the
limitations of the Belgian copyright law. To celebrate this freedom and to
compensate the many years of not being allowed to upload photos of these
Belgian subjects (and thus bare articles), we organise this photo contest.
During the Summer months July and August 2017 you can participate by
uploading your photos from modern buildings, public artworks, heritage
monuments and memorials, present in the public space in Belgium. Also
photos you made earlier are welcome!
