Thanks for asking. I was working under the assumption that the rest of the
details would be the same as usual - let me repeat them: deadline on 31
October for all countries, 10 images can be nominated per national
competition (which might be the top-10 or a different distribution if
needed). It is possible to submit them under embargo, by sending them
directly to me, keeping at least one of the jurors in copy. We will not
release the names of the nominees publicly, until the international jury
report is published, probably by early December.
At the same time, as always, you would make me very happy if you could at
least send the 10 images one day before the deadline :)

I am very glad that someone will take care of the international jury
Maybe I have overlooked the announcement for the deadline for sending the
best photos of a country to the international jury. So can you repeat it?
We will not have our own jury processes finished in Austria before the very
end of October. But an international jury, that cannot get the pictures
just in time, will not work properly :).

*Betreff:* [Wiki Loves Monuments] Setting up the international jury
Like every year, we need to put together a good jury for Wiki Loves
Monuments 2015. It is a complicated and delicate process to come to a
balanced jury, and I would like to outline the criteria here, and to ask
for your input. I have agreed to take the lead on this process - but would
definitely welcome your input, and help.
As in the past years, I think it is important to aim once again for a jury
that as a whole is neutral and balanced in many ways. This means ideally:
* A mix of photography experts, heritage experts and Wikimedia experts
(aiming at a total size of 7)
* Geographically balanced so that no two jury members come from the same
* Balance in many other ways imaginable (while at the same time, one can
never assure a balance in all aspects)
* The international jury members do not serve on a national jury for WLM
At the same time, there are some practical considerations:
* Jury members must be able to write and read English
* They must have the time to commit to judge 200-400 photos in two or
three rounds over a period of 3 weeks
* While jury members can participate in a local competition, their photos
cannot participate in the international finale
* Living/working in a country that participates in the competition will
not by default exclude someone from serving on the jury
* It would be helpful if the juror would be willing to share their real
name for the jury report.
Do you know someone who would make a good juror, please contact me
privately with the suggestion. At least let me know who the juror is, how I
could contact him/her and why they would make a good jury member (and
whether you have reason to believe they would accept the nomination, if
I will do my best to put together once again a qualified and diverse jury,
with your help!
Aside from that, I could use some help in 1) setting up the jury tool for
the international jury and 2) writing/layouting the jury report after the
whole process is finished.
Thank you in advance!
