[Wikimedia-l] UNESCO Challenge

Eric Luth
Dear Wikimedians,

On 18 April (today), the International Day for Monuments and Sites is
celebrated. On the same day, the first edition of the UNESCO Challenge
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/UNESCO_Challenge> will also take place.
The challenge will last for a full month.

The UNESCO Challenge is a challenge co-arranged by UNESCO, the Swedish
National Heritage Board and Wikimedia Sverige, with the purpose to improve
Wikipedia articles on world heritage sites. UNESCO are going to release a
couple of thousand images (they will be added in this category
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Images_from_UNESCO_2017-04>),
and a lot of Open Access texts about the sites, which may be used in the
challenge.

Write in whatever language you like! You find the page for participation
and points registration here
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/UNESCO_Challenge/Participants>.

Please help us spread the word!

*Eric Luth,*
Wikimedia Sverige

This is a wonderful initiative Eric. Can other groups add a special
prize for the articles related with their country or other topics (eg
Non material, natural sites)?

Splendid, James, and thank you! Please note though, that, this time, the
focus is on Wikipedia articles and Wikidata (as indicated on the point
registration page).

Best,
Eric
