Wiki Loves Public Art (WLPA)
In Europe, there are several thousands of sculptures and other works of art that aren't covered by Wiki Loves Monuments, but still are very relevant to document. In many cases pictures of them are free to upload to Wikimedia Commons. Now Wikimedia Sverige and Europeana (the massive collaboration of Europe's GLAMs) want your help in organizing a photo scavenger contest in 2013.
- Are you interested in public art?
- Do you want to contact and work with GLAM:s in your country?
- Do you know people who like to go out and take pictures?
- Is your chapter looking for a cool project for 2013?
- Do you want to cooperate with other chapters?
Well, then this would be the perfect time to get in contact with us!
What counts as public art? We are thinking about including sculptures, mosaics, mural paintings, memorials and place specific installments in the public space that are registered in a third party's database and have a specific ID number. Exactly what objects that will be included in the competition will be decided on the national level depending on what data we can get our hands on and what falls within the Freedom of Panorama in the country.
When will the Wiki Loves Public Art contest be held? The contest will take place during the 1st to the 31st of May 2013, with the results in before the summer. We don't want to intrude upon the already successful Wiki Loves Monument scavenger hunt, and indeed cooperate as much as possible.
