Hi all,

Sending in an update from the Ahmedabad community:  The Wikipedia Takes Ahmedabad photowalk is scheduled for Tuesday, 3 January 2012.  As of now, we have received confirmation from 162 individuals on facebook itself!  We saw a surge in interest from amateur and professional photographers in Ahmedabad after the Times of India and the Mirror covered our story yesterday.  93.5 RED FM played our pre-recorded interviews this morning.

Noopur has created a short-guide on the fly for uploading pictures on to the Wikimedia Commons:


Due to the sudden increase in the number of interested participants, we have decided to hold a pre-event meeting with group co-ordinators tomorrow, 29 December 2011.

Dear all,
I take great pride and joy in announcing Wikipedia takes Ahmedabad on January 3, 2012. As a great start to the event, we had a new volunteer join us and make our logo. He is very excited to have discovered Commons and has offered his help for all events in future. We are coordinating it thru FB group and event page and details are listed on Wiki here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Takes_Ahmedabad
