After my chat with Lourie two weeks ago, I discussed a possible WikiLovesMonuments with Lodewijk. He was one of the guys that organised the first edition in the Netherlands, and he really helped me organising the edition last year in Belgium. The competition will go global this year: Europe, India, Chile, Canada, USA, Russia, Israel, Philippines, are sure they will participate this list (full list of particating countries
). And he was looking forward to see South Africa join the competition!
More information on the competition is on Commons: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2012 You can find a proposed organisational timeline
that will help us with organising the event.
Maybe we could meet to chat about the possibilities, and see if we can find enough persons that are interested? I had already a first chat with Lourie two weeks ago. I propose a meeting, again in Cape Town: see the DOODLE http://www.doodle.com/m2ih8nhm2grka4xv
