I don't see the problem, Racso.
At the moment, the Argentinian, Chilean, Mexican, Panamanian and Spanish
contest are working fine on Wikipedia. The templates are updated and
working with a direct link to the UploadWizard; it just needs a copy-paste.

If you're afraid of things failing, you could
of course just copy it
first and see if everything works. There's no need to delete it.
I may try that, indeed. The problem is that, anyway, one would need to do
changes in the bots/database/etc. to make them point to the new lists, so I
think that problems may still arise and be noticed by the participants.
What I was thinking to do is to keep the contest lists where they are and
create copies for Wikipedia (similar to your suggestion, but the official
contest lists would still be the external ones).
But one of the identified success factors has
always been that pictures
end up on Wikipedia - that is what motivates a lot of people.
I don't think that both things (having the lists in an external wiki and
adding pics to Wikipedia) are mutually exclusive. Why wouldn't be possible
to add the pics to the articles and existing Wikipedia lists while keeping
the contest lists where they are?
