I am proud and delighted to hereby announce that the jury of Wiki Loves
Monuments 2011 in Poland has chosen the three winning photos of the
contest and 7 other pictures that won an honourable mention; all ten
photos are also nominated for the European stage of the competition.
An overview of the winning photos is available at the following page on
the Polish Wikipedia: <http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WLZ>.
What I find *really* incredible is that all ten winning photos have been
uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by users who have registered an account
specifically for the contest. This confirms our assumptions :-) that the
idea of the contest has been really appealing for new users, and I hope
that some of those people can stay on Wikipedia for good.

Some of our jury members would like to download images. Last year I made
. It's a simple pywikipedia based downloader. Easy for me, but not
really for a (non-technical) jury member. Any suggestions what to give them?
I was thinking about compiling a list of all images, either originals or
thumbs depending on the size, as list of urls which people could feed to
a tool like wget. Any easier suggestions?
after some delay, the survey to all participants will go out tomorrow. It
will be a thankyou message posted on the talkpage of all participants (who
will get an email because their talkpage is altered if activated - default
setting for new accounts). This thank you will include also an invitation to

My name is Anna van den Broek and I work at Europeana. Currently I’m working
on the virtual Art Nouveau exhibition on Europeana which will contain a
selection of photos from the Art Nouveau category from the Wiki Loves
Monuments contest 2011. Therefore I would like to download the whole Art
Nouveau category. To do that, I wanted to use the Catdown tool (
http://toolserver.org/~platonides/catdown/catdown.php). I tried to use the
tool by pasting the link from the Art
into the ‘category’ bar. When I do it like this I get the following
message: There are no images in that category. Could anyone please explain
me how to use the Catdown tool? Or tell me what I’m doing wrong?****

It would be nice if every country could make a short blog post for
http://www.wikilovesmonuments.eu/ when their winning images are
announced. Sweden is the first. Maybe they can kick off the row of
posts. Next up is Poland :-)
It can be really short (this are the winning images from <country> and a
bunch of images) or you can write a bit more if the jury wrote something
or if you want to give some background, statistics etc.
Just put the text and links to the images on this list with a subject
like "blog post winning photos <your country>" and either Lodewijk, Elke
or myself will post it to the site.
