Wikimedia Community Ireland Newsletter – October 2017

 

Wiki Science

We are very excited to announce that Ireland will be taking part in Wiki Science for the first time this year. Wiki Science is a photo competition looking for images under 5 broad categories relating to science: people in science, microscopy images, non-photographic media, image sets, and a general category. In Ireland we will also be awarding a sixth prize for an image of Women in STEM. We will be announcing more details over the coming weeks, and if you have any suggestions, thoughts or ideas on this exciting initiative do get in contact!
