Greetings from the Wiki Loves Butterfly team.
As you might know, for the last 6 years, we have been documenting butterfly
taxons endemic to eastern and north-eastern part of India through the Wiki
Loves Butterfly project. Our aim has been to increase the amount of free
license materials along with enrichment of related content on different
Wikimedia sites. Our project was previously supported by 4 Rapid Grants and
currently the fifth phase is running under the Project Grants.
Since the beginning of the project in 2016, we have gained a considerable
amount of expertise, maturity and confidence to successfully plan and
execute field-documentations and expand our area of activity in remote deep
forests of north-east India. We are now applying for the Wikimedia
Community Fund so that we can expand our activities in our next phase to
bring more quantity and quality to the topic.
You can find our fund proposal here -

Tomorrow is the launch of the Wikimedia sound logo
<https://soundlogo.wikimedia.org/> contest and we couldn’t be more excited.
We'll be in session soon and accepting submissions.
On behalf of the organizing team and community liaisons, we are grateful to
Commons community members and others who participated in the different
phases of this project – from an initial concept exploration to a contest
proposal – providing us with valuable guidance to help shape an open, global
contest <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Communications/Sound_Logo>. With
so much expertise in international photography contests and visual logo
searches in the movement, we are curious to learn how sound and audio
production will play out for us, in harmony with our values.
This is just a heads up and a thank you note. More information to come.
We'd love to welcome scores of submissions from around the world, so please
help the contest call vibrate through your networks. And of course, submit
one yourself. There are free and open source tools
that can help us capture sound and create that unique sound logo for our
movement. And you don't have to be pitch perfect, we'll be having an audio
production drop-in clinic
with our expert partner MassiveMusic on 29 September @ 15:00 UTC. We'd love
to hear from you.
Ok, I think I have included enough sound-related puns in this email.
Wishing you all well and once again, a heartfelt thank you.
On behalf of the sound logo team,
Lead Movement Communications Specialist
