Posters and Fliers

  • At Wikimania, the largest conference for Wikimedians in the world with around 1,400 participants, we handed out around 200 fliers with information about the project, with Europeana's logotype on it and talked about the projects with many dozens of people.
  • First WWI Edit-a-thon: Before our first event in Stockholm we handed out circa 200 fliers and put up more than 40 posters at Stockholm University with information about the event and the logotypes of Europeana, Wikimedia Sweden and another participating organizations. We created an event page on Wikipedia with the poster as an illustration and Europeana (with links to your portal) were included on the event page:

Only a handful of the presentations during the conference were given the opportunity to present before all participants in the auditorium.

Other Usage of Europeana's Logotype

  • On our website for Wiki Loves Public Art we have Europeana's logotype on the Partner page with a short text about Europeana ( and the logotype is visible at the bottom of each page.
  • As part of a project called Wiki Skills (a project that are organizing classes for teachers how to use wikis in education) we produced a leaflet with suggestions how Wiki Loves Public Art could be used as part of an assignment - Europeana's logotype and involvement was very visible there.
  • We have created a Twitter account (@WikiEuropeana) that so far has over 250 followers.
  • Europeana's and Wikimedia Sverige's logotype was used in external communication about the GLAM-WIKI 2013 conference sent out by WMUK (example).
