Wiki Loves Monuments
This year’s Wiki Loves Monuments finished on 30 September, seeing 1222 images uploaded by 76 participants. Our judges are currently working away, selecting the top ten winners. These winners will then go on to the international competition at the end of the month. Good luck to everyone who took part! Don’t forget that the map is available all year round, so you can start planning what photos to take for next year’s competition!
Editing events in TOG Hackerspace
We continue our monthly editing events in TOG Hackerspace on Monday 4 November from 7-9pm. Not only can you learn about Wikipedia, but also Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and all the other sister projects. All you need is a laptop and some ideas of what you’d like to work on – we’ll provide the pizza and the WiFi!
To get a reminder about this and other upcoming event sign up on the TOG Meetup page, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
