Dear Wikimedians of Colorado User Group,
We are inviting you to participate in Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP)
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Pages_Wanting_Photos>, a new
global contest scheduled to run from July through August 2020:
Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then
add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the
Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki
Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.
WPWP offers a focused task for guiding new editors through the steps of
adding content to existing pages. It can be used to organize editing
workshops and edit-a-thons.
The organizing team is looking for a contact person at the Wikimedia User
Group level (geographically or thematically) or for a language WP, to
coordinate the project locally. We’d be glad for you to reply to this
email, or sign up directly at WPWP Participating Communities

Dear Wikimedians of Colorado User Group members,
My name is Samir Elsharbaty. I'm a community brand and marketing
coordinator at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm reaching out with an update
and an invitation to join us in the movement brand project.
Last year, we started the movement brand project
a project to evolve the Wikimedia movement’s brand identity system. To do
this we have partnered with Snøhetta
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sn%C3%B8hetta_(company)>, an international
branding and architecture agency. Through workshops, exercises, and
requests for feedback, Snøhetta is working with Wikimedia communities to
create an updated naming convention and design, which will be used by the
Wikimedia Foundation and will be opt-in for affiliates.
As a Wikimedia affiliate organization, Colorado Wikimedians UG is an
important stakeholder in this project. I would like to invite you to become
part of a process to shape our global shared brand identity. Participation
is not time consuming but crucial to direct our work ahead.
Over the next five months, the brand team will be helping Snøhetta gather
community feedback at key moments. Your involvement would revolve around
receiving updates and providing feedback on proposals for a naming
convention and brand design. If you are interested, please select one or
two people from Colorado Wikimedians UG to act as a Liaison between our
team and your group during this process. We will send important updates and
all feedback opportunities to that person so that they can share with the
group and collect your feedback.
This process will arrive at a new branding system that you will be able to
adopt if you choose, so we hope that you will decide to participate.
In the meantime, here are main hubs for updates and discussion on this

Please reach out to us with any questions or thoughts you may have.
I’m looking forward to collaborating with you!
