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.
We are ready to announce winners of 2018 WLM. The top 15 photos will be
announced one by one as winners on our social media:
We will also post an article on our website once all winners are announced.
We will start at 8am GMT from the 15th place and work backward toward
number 1, posting one photo every 30 minutes. We also share photos ranked
16 to 25 as honorable mentions. Those winners are being announced on our
social media at the moment.
Please feel free to share, post, re-post our posts and spread the word
about Wiki Loves Monuments. Today is the most exciting part of the
competition and marks the fruition of everybody's efforts. Huge
congratulations to all winners as well as national organizers and
WLM International Team
This email comes late to you and I apologize for that. In the midst of
planning we missed the step of notifying the public list.
We have started announcing the results on social media now. The posts will
come out in intervals and the winner post is set to be announced at 15:00
Our Twitter and Instagram accounts have started the countdown:
There will be a blog post on wikilovesmonuments.org and
blog.wikimedia.org. The WLM blog post will go out as soon as the winner is
announced and we hope that WMF blog post happens at the same time as well.
There is a tentative plan to have a banner on Wikimedia projects,
similar to the one we had two years ago, that would indicate the results
are announced and would send the users to the WMF blog post. It is likely
that the banner would announce both WLE and WLM results.
If you are aware of press mentions, please help us compiling them at
Comments and questions are welcome, though I will be a bit slow to
respond (but others may jump in).
