This is the chapter report for Wikimedia Nederland for November 2010

In 2010/2011, Wikimedia Nederland participated in the fundraiser as a tier 1
chapter, and hired for the first time a freelancer to help out with the
communication side of the fundraiser (press, messaging, analysis, social
media). In November, we finished the set-up for the fundraiser, and went
online in time.
 Wiki Loves Monuments, mini-conference

The jury wrapped up its deliberations, and came up with a long list. At a
jury retreat for one evening in Amsterdam, the jury came to its conclusions
and put together the winners list. For the Vlissingen sub contest a seperate
jury came to two winners.

The winners were announced at a prize ceremony at November 20 in Utrecht.
The ceremony was combined with a mini-conference, and lasted one afternoon.
Although all train traffic was down, the meeting was well attended with 40
attendees. Photos: [1]

As a nice detail, all volunteers and partners for this project were thanked
with a nice Wiki Loves Monuments-mug. See

 Meetings, conferences etc

Wikimedia Nederland was represented at two different conferences in
November: Economies of the Commons organized by Sound and Vision in
Hilversum/Amsterdam by Maarten Brinkerink and Maarten Dammers, and Maarten
Dammers participated and presented at GLAM-UK together with the
Tropenmuseum, Nationaal Archief and Sound and Vision.

Press attention focused on the Houellebecq book which contained Wikipedia
materials, the outcomes of Wiki Loves Monuments (12.500 photos, also
reported in a major national news paper website) and the Annual Fundraiser
kicking off.
