The grant request is now drafted above and the prizes will be on a
first-past-the-post open through until the start of 2017. We need a
couple of WM-LGBT+ volunteers with some experience with Featured
Pictures (on Commons or Wikipedia) to help with the process and flesh
out details. Please add your name to the meta page, or comment on the
associated talk page. If you haven't been active with WM-LGBT+ in the
past, this would be a good time to join in with the user group. :-)
I doubt it will be much volunteer time, as we only have to agree that
a nominated photograph has a clear LGBT+ related theme, not make any
assessment about whether it should be a Featured Picture.
The request is draft, so any feedback or improvements to the text are welcome.
