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.
This year Wikimedia Poland tried something very new and different - Wiki
Loves Monuments... Junior. It is a sub contest for our regular WLM aimed at
students of elementary and secondary schools. The idea behind WLM Junior is
to connect educational projects with WLM. We invited 11 schools to
participate. Each school organized a Wikimedia Commons training and
uploading session, some also organized photo-walks. The schools had a
separate Campaign created (
Overall WLM Junior brought 700 pictures (500 are now in the category, but
200 need to be recategorized since some students used the regular uploader)
which is about 10% of all pictures in this year's WLM in Poland.
The pictures will now be judged by a special jury consisting of teenage
photographers, Polish Teacher of the Year, an artist. We will give prizes
in two age categories - younger than 14 years old and 14-18 years.
After the contest we will organize a special mobile photo exhibition which
will visit all the participating schools.
You can read all about the project here:
Next year Wikimedia Poland will be organizing the project again and - if
there will be some interest - we will be happy to make it global.
Let me know if you have any questions about WLM Junior :)

I hope everyone is very much enjoying WLM 2021: as some of the national
competitions have ended last week, others are only starting. Together we
have already received over 141.000 images this year
Thank you all for accomplishing this!
Quite a few national campaigns will be using the Montage tool
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Montage> to help our juries
make their choice for the winning pictures, and the top 10 that will be
sent to the international jury.
Because of an update to the cloud services, some errors were being reported
over the weekend in the SSL connection to the tool. This is not only
affecting Montage, but several tools that are being hosted in the Wikimedia
Cloud, and therefore on Toolforge like Montage. Wikimedia developers are
working on this, and if you would like to follow this process, please
subscribe to this ticket on Phabricator
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T291387>. For Montage status updates
only ('is it just me, or...'), you can check the Montage status page on
Our Montage developers have created a temporary fix for the Montage tool
for now, and I will be creating the on Commons requested campaigns today.
Campaigns should be working again now without the SSL errors: please let me
know if you are still having problems.
If you would like to use the tool for judging the photos in your national
WLM, you can request a campaign on the tools' talkpage on Commons
You will have time until the 30st November 2021 to send in your top 10, and
I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful pictures soon!
