Dear Wikimedians,

This is a (belated) announcement that requests are now being taken for
illustrations to be created for the Philip Greenspun illustration
project (PGIP).

The aim of the project is to create and improve illustrations on
Wikimedia projects. You can help by identifying which important
articles or concepts are missing illustrations (diagrams) that could
make them a lot easier to understand. Requests should be made on this
page: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Philip_Greenspun_illustration_project/Requests

If there's a topic area you know a lot about or are involved with as a
Wikiproject, why not conduct a review to see which illustrations are
missing and needed for that topic? Existing content can be checked by
using Mayflower to search Wikimedia Commons:

    * http://tools.wikimedia.de/~tangotango/mayflower/

or use the Free Image Search Tool to quickly check for images of a
given topic in other-language projects:

    * http://tools.wikimedia.de/~magnus/fist.php

The community suggestions will be used to shape the final list, which
will be finalised to 50 specific requests for Round 1, due to start in
January. People will be able to make suggestions for the duration of
the project, not just in the lead-up to Round 1.

    * General information about the project:
    * Potential illustrators and others interested in the project
should join the mailing list:

Please pass this message on to any Wikimedia community that might find
it relevant.
