Wiki Loves Monuments 2020

Congratulations to all our winners in this year’s Wiki Loves Monuments Ireland. We have submitted the top ten images to the international round. We also awarded 5 extra prizes this year to celebrate those who went above and beyond to take photographs of structures that had no image on Wikimedia Commons until now! You can see the top ten Irish images here (alongside all the other national winners), and our special prize winners here.

Virtual events

We have moved our monthly editing events in TOG Hackerspace online to Discord, with our next virtual meetup will be in 2021! Join us on Wednesday 27 January from 7-9pm when we will be celebrating Wikipedia’s 20th birthday! Not only can you learn about Wikipedia, but also Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and all the other sister projects. RSVP on Meetup to get the link to the TOG Discord server.

To get a reminder about this and other upcoming events sign up on the TOG Meetup page, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Want to get involved in 2021?

If you, your group, or organistion want to run a virtual Wikimedia workshop, we can provide a Zoom space in which we can hold an editing or other workshop for you and your colleagues. Do get in touch at wikimediaireland[at]gmail.com
