Hello everyone,

The Europeana Art Challenge has kicked off and runs until 30th May.

The aim is to make sure that there are Wikidata entries and Wikipedia articles for each of the 300 artworks chosen from across Europe.

Details of the competition and how to sign up are here: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Europeana_Art_History_Challenge

As of writing only 58 out of 300 artworks have an article in English https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Europeana_Art_History_Challenge/Data.

If something close to home sounds interesting, there are 20 artworks selected from England and Wales.
There's a points based system and prizes for the most points from each country.

Time to get stuck in!
