Congrats Clément! and thanks Gilbert to give me the opportunity to update all of you about some exciting news about support to photographers by WMCH for the next year!
In 2015 Wikimedia CH will continue to extend it support to Commons photographers by different means:
1) A budget is reserved to support the travel and accommodation cost of Commons photographers, the request will be process by the micro-grant committee from October 15 this year (1)
2) Wikimedia CH can support you to get press accreditation to cover a public event, contact your community liaison or press(a)wikimedia.ch
3) A budget is reserved to support confirmed Commons photographers to upgrade their photo materiel, it can be a support to buy new material or rent an exceptional material for one shot usage (1)
4) wikimedia CH will move to a new office in January, and we will make sure that a Community space will be available, this space should be suitable for Photo atelier (like " introduction to the art of QI by WMCH supported photographers" "document you rare coins" ), will include a DIY Digitization Platform as well as a workstation with all the tools for photo treatment including high band with for fast upload on Commons
5) A group photo is highly active in Romandie, and we will be more than happy to support the creation of an equivalent structure in the other linguistic area
6) A shared calendar has been created to indicate all the event interesting to cover for Wikimedia Commons, If you want to be able to add events on this calendar, just ask on this mailing list, there is already more than ten people able to grant you the access (2)
7) because Wikimedia CH is Wikimedia , we will support you by any mean, so just be bold and ask us if you need a support not listed here.
Support to photographers is just conditioned to the final upload of the pictures on commons, and the level of originality of the pictures to be created (the threshold is usually quite low, we just cannot sponsor the realization of the 1200th picture of the same monument)
Si vous souhaitez vous aussi participer à la création de contenu pour Commons, Wikimedia CH peut vous aider. Vous trouverez plus d'infos sur cette page: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wikimedia_CH
