As some of you may know, Wikivoyage uses page banners, the 7:1 panoramic
images placed at the top of each page. We are always short of such
images in general and of good banners with natural objects in
particular. This prompted us to organize the competition of page banners
as a satellite event during WLE. Last year we were running such a
competition for Russian destinations. It was quite successful delivering
88 excellent banners, many of them used nowadays across 17 language
editions of Wikivoyage. This year we extend the banner competition
The idea is very simple: take your WLE photo, crop it to the 7:1 format,
and upload it separately as a page banner specifying the destination
where it goes. Our (Wikivoyage-based) jury will grade the uploads and
choose the winner who will receive a small prize.
We would be grateful if you disseminate information about this
competition among the participants. Posting short information with the
upload link on the page of your national competition would be great.
Having good page banners from your country not only improves its
coverage on Wikivoyage, but also draws more readers and editors, who may
eventually choose your country for their next trip.
We would also be grateful if the international team finds a way to
advertise this banner competition on the main WLE page and in the media.
Questions and comments are welcome. We look forward to receiving
excellent page banners this year!
Reminder: please make sure that:
* You provided a landing page (Links to:)
* You provide translations for the text in the banner (Text:)
PS: If you provided the minimal info, the plan is that a banner above
Wikipedia will be up within half an our after the start of the contest.
Four our Wiki Loves Monuments contests Central Notice banners were a very
important way to advertise out contest.
When looking for WLE banners coordination page, I found only one for last
years edition. Well there be a centralized approach to this or should I
work on this myself?
(I'll be bold to answer)
There will be a centralized approach to setting a CentralNotice for WLE.
There is a request filled in on Meta by Romaine.

Dear international team
I am re-sending this email to international team members of WLE for the
third time, I guess. So I appreciate a response.
1. I have admin account on WLE site (www.wikilovesearth.org) but I forget
my password. I can't able to retrieve new password so Please hep me get new
password. my username is registered with email "saqib.qayyum(a)hotmail.com"
2. We used to have email address "pakistan(a)wikilovesearth.org" which was
redirected email to my email address. But the email address is no more
working at the moment. Perhaps it has been deleted? Please re-create it for
us and setup email forwarding to email address of mine.
WLE is approaching fast and therefore I appreciate fast response on this. I
hope this won't go unnoticed this time.
