is Instagram compatible with Creative Commons?
Can I upload *my* Instagram pics on Commons (so could it be used for WLM)?
Please consider that I'm not suggesting Instagram pics are good for WLM
(they are filtered and all, probably not very suitable for illustrating
monuments on Wikipedia)
but is a legal matter.
If there is sufficient interest from the community, I will propose a workshop on the WLM participants' survey and the insights we can gather from it.
I think it is important that as many people involved in the organization of WLM 2012 and WLM 2013 as possible take part in the workshop, so we can get some collective sense making going.
So please sign up on the proposal page if you are interested:
It would certainly also be possible to present the results from the organizers' survey during the same workshop (possibly asking for a bit more time). Please let me know if that would be an option.
Concerning the participants' survey in 2014, we discussed with John Andersson about having one survey for all photo contests during this year.
Please let me know what you think. - Whether a participants' survey will be carried out this year at all, will probably also depend on the interest among WLM organizers. It's a lot of work; so I would suggest doing it only if there is a concrete demand for it. Any feedback is appreciated.

At this point no international team for Wiki Loves Monuments seems to have
formed, although an international team for Wiki Loves Earth seems to have
to some extent.
I'm assuming there will be /no/ international competition unless someone
gives a shout soon. I'm asking, because I get this question quite often for
As indicated before, my personal preference (and I received a fair amount
of positive feedback on that) is to see an alternative competition of Wiki
Loves Earth in even years (2014, 2016) and Wiki Loves Monuments in odd
years (2015, 2017). I still won't be involved in the international
coordination, but it would be good to see a viable and sustainable model
I'm asking whether these assumptions are still valid, because I still hold
access to the mailing lists, the international website and the social media
accounts. If an international team does stand up, I would like to at least
grant them access to those.
Anyway, please let me know if I missed anything :)
