FYI for those interested in monumentalism.
I gave a talk to a group of hs and college students recently, whow anted to
know what to do to start editing. "do you love monuments?" "yes!"
all loved the wlm website and started plotting in their own neighborhoods
:-) "how cool that chicago has N different districts already!"

Subject: [Wiki Loves Monuments] Deadlines: please check
To: Wiki Loves Monuments Photograph Competition <
I would like to repeat the deadlines from
again, and would like to hear it very soon if one of the deadlines is not
realistic for you, or if you have good reasons to change it. Especially the
October 21 deadline is important. With that information, we will set the
final deadlines on Saturday.
* August 27: Upload wizard and websites should be ready.
* August 30: Crucial infrastructure should be translated to your local
languages, banner info should be ready and translated. English summary page
should be available for each country.
* 1 September - 30 September: actual contest. Banners up. (exception
Israel, which is using the hebrew months, but will follow the other
* October 21: *Deadline for submitting the 10 nominations for the
international contest*. This can be a private submission (with delayed
publishing) and they do not have to be ordered. Being late for this
deadline might result in having no nominations in the international contest
- so make sure this is a realistic deadline for you.
* November 18: The international jury needs to have its results ready. This
can't be much later, because we would like to produce calendars again, but
this time get them delivered before the end of the year.
I would appreciate it also if some people could confirm this is realistic
and workable for them.
