FYI,

Wikimedia Ukraine is initiating a new photo contest – “Wiki Loves Earth”, its goal being collecting pictures of Ukraine Natural Heritage sites and Landscape and Ornamental Gardening objects for illustrating articles in the worldwide free Internet encyclopedia Wikipedia.

Everybody can take part in the competition. A registration on Wikimedia Commons (one of many Wikipedia sister projects) is required. You are to find in the list of natural heritage objects the ones you know of, take a picture of them yourself (it could be done anytime, previously or starting now) and upload them to Commons (during April 15 – May 15, 2013). The authors of the best pictures will be awarded with prizes. The results announcement and the awarding ceremony will be held in Kyiv, on June 5, 2013, on the World Environment Day.

The Organizational Committee has already started preparation work on the competition list, and almost 8 000 of entries are to be included there. Nature reserves, landscape parks, protected areas, natural heritage sites, botanical (dendrological), zoological gardens and parks, and ornamenting gardening objects will be in the list.

Yuri Perohanych, Wikimedia Ukraine Executive Director, said that this photo contest will draw the society’s attention to the existing problems of Ukraine natural heritage protection, and the contest itself is to show the perspectives of green/eco tourism in Ukraine.

As Yevhen Buket, the contest coordinator, pointed out, the idea to initiate such a competition has arisen after conducting a successful international photo contest Wiki Loves Monuments in Ukraine this September. The goal of the contest was collecting pictures of cultural heritage monuments of Ukraine.

Wikimedia Ukraine invited Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, environmental organizations, as well as donors and sponsors, to help with the organization of the competition and contribute to the contest prize fund.

Noise. Troll. Cease and desist, unless you have something positive to contribute.

fyi, since you don't seem to have the time to regularly follow Wikimedia activities in India, many Wikimedians took part in the global Wikimedia Loves Monuments event, without any funding offers, with terrific results (that's a bonus, the participation was the prize). If you have ideas for some other kind of event, without necessarily copycatting Ukraine, please do come forward.

PS what is a rd nose? Don't bother to reply, unless it is in abbrvtns, I don't need to hit the delete button so often.

Niraj Suryawanshi
It is inspiring that such events will be carried out and executed successfully also their impact on highlighting the problems on natural heritage protection is one major step in preserving the countries heritage and maintaining them.
every chapter should carry the tradition forward what Wikimedia Ukraine is looking forward to.

btw 
Instead of discussing on cash, the red nose reindeer should check out this!
and there are PEOPLE (not hotmail reindeers) who work for a CAUSE not for CASH!
oh wait does the red nosed reindeer know how to click the link check it out and off course READ it??!

Re: Fwd: [Chapters] Wiki Loves Earth

Niraj,

there are many Wikipedians who work for cause. While you are saying that you having been working for cause, I or the Wikimedia community have never seen you active. Though you may have done something great, but that doesn't means that you'll always put this up infront of everyone. A passionate Wikipedian is a person who will never pinpoint his achievements, thus it seems that you are only interested to gain some attention. Hope things changes soon.[1]




PS: Don't tell me you are brother of Abhishek Suryawanshi.

Interestingly, the "Wikipedia takes Pune" page is missing a Commons link to a category into which your event phoographs have been loaded.

Can you please rectify this?

Hey Ashwin,
even i was unaware of its missing page, will check over it. thanks a tonn.
Bt I was there for the event so I can ensure you about it.
 
And regarding the person faking in burkha, he/she dosnt have what it takes to show up and say it on your face!(or through his/her account)
I would have had been so glad to use the word "balls" but as of now I'm so unaware of the gender!

PS: faking don't mind, since my comments point to a fake account and i guess noone will be offended, you taking offence through a fake account would be so so fake & pointless!
If in case you are offended I'm expecting a nice reply to stop me from offending you!

Oh, Lets hope to find out the gender first.
