I am proud and delighted to hereby announce that the Wiki Loves
Monuments contest is now officially under an honorary patronage of the
Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
This is another huge milestone that we have reached in the past
fortnight and I hope that it will enable the project to get more
reputation and notability, and therefore get even more enthusiastic
users from outside the Wikimedia world.
My thanks go to Alek Tarkowski, PhD, from our partner organisation
Centrum Cyfrowe Projekt: Polska (who is also the director of Creative
Commons Poland), for all his efforts and familiarity of the Ministry
that helped us getting the patronage.

What would you think if we added a blog component to the European website?
That way we could make it a bit more interactive instead of just a portal,
and we could actually use it to show successes around Europe. I would like
to allow people from all contests to write blog posts (directly or through
moderation) and make it that way easier to maintain. The blog would be in
English, to keep it simple, but could link to national blogs for local

as a reminder, we will have an irc meeting this evening at 22:30 CEST (20:30
UTC) in #wikilovesmonuments on Freenode (http://webchat.freenode.net or
through your favorite IRC client).
http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/WLM-July-IRC-meeting contains a preliminary
agenda - I will probably mix up the order and emphasize some points there,
so keep an eye on it and add points if you think something needs to be
discussed. If you have very specific questions, you can also put them
The meeting should take no longer than one hour, so I hope you all bear with
me and help me keep the agenda and time. Of course you can hang out in the
channel before the meeting, and ask some input.
Some important points I expect input on from many people:
* Who should be in the European jury? I want suggestions! You can put them
in the etherpad if you like.
* Nice prizes for the European contest? Same.
We need to start making some decisions here, so even if you can't be there,
