Abstract

In 2012 Wikimedia Israel has decided to partake in the international Wiki Loves Monuments Competition. In order to do so it had to face several serious challenges among which were the following:

  • No public awareness to the term "National Monuments".

In this lecture I will show how Wikimadia Israel handles this challenges resulting in more than 6,500 free pictures uploaded to Wikimedia Commons as part of the competition.
