A meeting between Marco Correa and Beatriz Lorenzo, Academic Department Coordinator of the Centro Cultural de España (CCE), took place to explain the details about the required resources for an edit-a-thon. The cultural influence of Spain, as well as the Spanish exile in Chile - with a focus on the landing of the ship Winnipeg(1939) - were set as the main topics of the forthcoming edit-a-thon. All the required resources were planned to be provided by the CCE as well as the original images from the Spanish exiles (provided by the Winnipeg Association.) It was planned to upload these images to Wikimedia Commons as well. In addition, Ms. Lorenzo offered to propose an editing workshop to the CCE officials, before the edit-a-thon to expand the event impact.

Editing Workshop, Wikipedia in the University 2015 - FEN of the Universidad de Chile (I)Edit

Date: June, 30.
Type of activity: External [Presentation/Edition workshop].
Place: Santiago, Chile.
Participation: Presentation [Eduardo Testart and Rocío Consales].

Summary/report:
The first Wikipedia in the University workshop at the Economics and Business School of the Universidad de Chile, fell within the framework of the Wikipedia in the University 2015 project. This workshop was part of the activities for the Introduction to Technology class, supervised by Professor Martín Pérez Comisso. In the course of the workshop, where two students and Professor Pérez attended, Wikipedia's five pillars were analyzed, with a focus on free-licensed works and the benefits brought to projects such as the Wikimedia Foundation. In addition, Mediawiki software code was introduced and, as a matter of understanding the inclusion of references in wiki-related articles, two concepts such as transclusion and templates, were explained. Moreover, Wikipedia-related editing concepts and its potential as tool for education, management of information and knowledge generation, were also reviewed during this session.

Date: July 17-19.
Type of activity: External [Conference].
Place: Mexico City, Mexico.
Participation: Participation [Wikimedia Chile Board and members].

Summary/report:
Wikimania 2015 is the official annual conference and meeting of the Wikimedia Foundation and the Wikimedia Community. Wikimedia Mexico was the event host, opening the discussion over the vision and work of the Wikimedia Foundation and the free knowledge (movement) around the world, where talks and activities were held not only in English, but activities and a Spanish 'track' were included within the conference to improve the local engagement and regional involvement in the event.

Ten members of Wikimedia Chile took part in the event, two of them as representatives of Wikimedia Chile, funded by a Wikimedia Foundation subsidy to the WMCL chapter. All of them engaged in different activities within the conference program such as discussion sessions (in English and Spanish), where the community manifested their interest in the issues related to Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation related projects.

The official opening of the conference was July 17, with an opening ceremony and speech presided by Ivan Martínez, the Wikimania 2015 Coordinator and President of Wikimedia Mexico.

Throughout the diverse talks, meetings, conferences and workshops that took place, the different aspects of the Wikimedia Foundation projects were discussed as well as opportunities for chapter or regional collaboration. The representatives of Wikimedia Chile divided themselves to take part and attend the largest number of sessions possible, selecting those with the topics most relevant or pertinent to the current projects and interests of the WMCL chapter.

On July 17, the first sessions and activities commenced where the WMCL team divided itself between the activities in Spanish and English, related to the Wikimedia movement, GLAM, technical talks as well as the advances and initiatives related to the Wikimedia movement.

On July 18, similar to the previous day's activities, the team took part in different meetings and workshops related to Wikipedia and Wikimedia policies, new initiatives, practices and featured speakers over cultural topics related to the technological use of the knowledge, privacy, licenses and uses.

Finally on July 19, the secretary of Wikimedia Chile, Sarah Chambers presented a mini-workshop titled "Supersize Me! – Growth Hacking for Developing Wiki Groups", focused on sharing the diverse, low-cost or free techniques to gather together and encourage participation in local (interest) groups. Additionally, the President of Wikimedia Chile, Marco Correa attended a meeting of Wikimedia Chapter Presidents, led by Jimmy Wales. At the end of this day the closing ceremony was held, along with a brief awards ceremony for the 'Wikipedists' of the year and the presentation of Wikimania 2016 in Esino Lario, Italy, which will be organized by Wikimedia Italia.

Lessons learnedEdit

What lessons were learned that may help others succeed in similar projects, or that may change the way you are doing this project?
What worked well?
  •   Administrative Tasks
The grant received allowed us to cover various administrative costs. Thanks to this we have moved to a new web hosting, which has allowed our website to continue with a healthy operation. Members of Wikimedia Chile, including the Board, now have faster access to chapter information, in comparision to the previous provider, improving the availability of the site. In addition, and since it now runs under a VPS service, a customized configuration allows the administrator and users to have all their needs covered. In addition, our virtual office used for tax purposes, is now working properly, with services that allow the entire board to use a physical office once a month for board meetings and general coordination. The financial operations of our institution continues on the right path: Monthly payments for the chapter bank account have been processed, allowing the Corporation activities to continue. Also, the grant funds from the Wikimedia Foundation can now be received properly.


  •     Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile
For the project Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile, 25 documents that were part of the Chilean Civil Registry records were located in 2014; 24 were requested and finally 23 were provided through a formal channel. From the latter, only 22 could be used, since one document was a copy from a modern certificate. From these documents, 6 were uploaded on 2014, and 4 of them during April 2015, leaving 12 documents pending to be uploaded. We are also trying to acquire certificates from the Archbishop of Santiago. Additionally, the process of locating documents is slow due to the fact that Chilean authorities need the specific location of the documentation in order to solicit a copy.


  •   Official Speeches of Salvador Allende
The transcription and validation of the liberated speeches from the third stage of the "Speeches of Salvador Allende" (on September 22, 2014) is still ongoing. By the end of 2014, 19 speeches (and around 375 pages) from the third stage were corrected and 10 speeches (and around 132 pages) were validated. By this date, all 25 speeches from the third stage have been corrected —composed of a total of 473 pages—, but only 12 of them have been validated, including a validation of 173 pages. This leaves around 300 pages remaining to be validated, but we understand that there is still time to liberate more speeches, if this present stage is finished in the short to mid-term. Also, there might be a chance to ask for additional help from the interns in the Salvador Allende Foundation, that normally arrive in the third quarter of the year.


  •   Wikipedia in University
During the first semester of 2015 we worked with two courses that participated in this project. The first one was "Introduction to Technology", held in University of Chile by the same teacher that participated in previous versions of the project, who also joined Wikimedia Chile as a member. The second course was "Interactive Communication" in the Universidad Alberto Hurtado, which was its first time joining this project. The first course (U. de Chile) had 48 students (and new users) that created and improved almost 40 articles in Spanish Wikipedia; in the second course (U. Alberto Hurtado), 20 students created 20 new articles about national monuments and museums of Chile. With these two courses we were able to meet and achieve the project goals for the whole year, with a total of 68 new editors and 60 new articles. Also, with the help of the Wikipedia Education tool, the project's execution was made easier.


  •   Wikimedia Chile Outreach
Through the creation of a network between different organizations with common goals, several edit-a-thons and editing workshops were held. The number of people who registered and participated with our Meetup group increased. This group has created the possibility to connect more people interested in the free-culture movement and could potentially serve as a source for future Wikipedia editors and WMCL chapter members. A Hootsuite account was set up to manage our social networks as well. Until July 2015, Wikimedia Chile organized three edit-a-thons and two editing workshops, with a total number of 5 outreach activities. Unfortunately we will not reach the goal of 40 chapter members total. Until July 2015, Wikimedia Chile organized three edit-a-thons, each one with a focus on a specific topic: Women's Day, National Heritage Day and a complementary activity during the SpaceApps event, along with 6 other workshops. Social media has helped us to share more information about Wikimedia Foundation projects, monthly initiatives, as well as Wikimedia Chile events. The number of followers within our social networks, according to our predictions for 2015, have been increasing consistently; the Meetup group "Wiki Force Chile" reached 100 members on July 4, 2015. By July 31, we have a total of 1,150 followers in twitter and 1,402 followers in Facebook. For the second semester we are expecting an increase in the total number of users for our Meetup group, and are planning to start using a social management tool to boost the ratio of followers in our social media networks.


  •     Wikimedian in Residence in the National Library of Chile
Thanks to the agreement with the National Library of Chile, between February and July of 2015, a “Wikipedian in Residence” visited the National Library of Chile once a week, to help develop and create Wikipedia articles about or related to the National Library itself. Also as part of the residence, 208 images ranging from public spaces to areas of restricted access within the National Library were photographed and 3 documents (composed of 168 pages) where uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.


  •   Trans-Andean Edit-a-thon
Planned for the second semester of 2015.


  •   Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015
A three-day Conferece was organized by Wikimedia Chile, were 173 people attended. The first day 50 people arrived for block II, the second day 34 attended block III, and 53 for block IV; the third and last day, 36 people attended blocks V-VI. The conference took place in the last days of March and was held in the National Library of Chile. Numerous organizations, educators and people with interest in the Wikimedia Foundation projects attended the conference, who were all introduced to the different features and projects of the foundation. During the event, attendants were informed about the benefits, challenges and means to collaborate with free-content projects. Additionaly, the achievements reached through GLAM, outreach and educational projects were presented. The main goal of the event was achieved, allowing us to reach a range of representatives from educational areas, as well as the general public. In addition, some cultural organizations engaged with us, creating a link between them and Wikimedia Chile. We are expecting to generate new content with their help, through the creation of articles, magazine documentation and so on. Finally, it is important to point out that during the conference, an agreement between WMCL and the National Library of Chile was signed which will allow us to create an alliance for future events.


  •   Sport and other Events Accreditation
A camera was purchased and designated for the Wikimedia Chile member that is in charge of this project. Most of the work related to this project is expected to be produced during the second semester of 2015.


Planned for the second semester of 2015.


  •     Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile Photo Contest
Planned for the second semester of 2015.


What didn't work?
  •   Administrative Tasks
Some administrative tasks could not be carried out, such as the printing of diplommas for founding members of the chapter and additional Board business cards, due to the busy schedule of the volunteers.


  •     Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile
Not all of the necessary documentation is available from the Chilean Civil Registration office. The oldest documentation is kept in the Archives of the Archbishopric of Santiago, where the access to these documents is restricted. Consequently, they could not be obtained.


  •   Official Speeches of Salvador Allende
The third stage of the project "Official Speeches of Salvador Allende" is the most ambitious stage of the project so far; it is composed of the same number of speeches than the first and second stages combined, with 132 pages more than the first two stages, entering a total of 473 pages. The Spanish community of Wikisource has moved a bit slower than we expected, and by this point, understanding at the same time that this was the most ambitous stage of the project, we do not have all the speeches corrected and validated. That is why in a mutual agreement, we decided along with the Salvador Allende Foundation, to wait to liberate more speeches until the third stage is finished, deciding to postpone the next part of the project for the second semester.


  •   Wikipedia in University
The Wikipedia in University project was affected by outside issues that generated a postponement of the project. The Metropolitan University of Technology —and other universities— underwent a student strike and as a result, it wasn't possible to complete the project in this university.


  •   Wikimedia Chile Outreach
One of the problems that we have faced is the necessity for outreach materials as requested from the Wikimedia Foundation that haven't been sent, creating a lack of supplies; we have been continuing outreach with the limited materials we have in stock from past years.


  •     Wikimedian in Residence in the National Library of Chile
In regard to the Wikimedian in Residence in the National Library, the hardest task was the selection of the material to be uploaded and worked on. Since the Library has an immense catalog, it's difficult to select and agree on material of impact, within a manageable size that can be uploaded.


  •   Trans-Andean Edit-a-thon
Planned for the second semester of 2015.


  •   Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015
Wikimedia Chile made a great outreach effort, contacting 291 GLAM and Educational organizations, but even considering the latter, we considerer that the response from target organizations wasn't as good as we expected, even though a fairly good number of attendees were present at the final event.


  •   Sport and other Events Accreditation
Since the camera for the project was recently acquired, we have not been able to submit a press credentials request yet, and now can proceed to do so for the project.


Postponed for the second semester of 2015.


  •     Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile Photo Contest
Planned for the second semester of 2015.

Outcomes and ImpactEdit

OutcomesEdit

Provide the original project goal here.
Wikimedia Chile will be able to organize: two projects to release material into Wikimedia Commons, and then transcibe it into Wikisource; the fourth implementation of Wikipedia in University; a series of outreach activites such as: wikipedia editing workshops, edit-a-thons and wiki takes events, social meetups through our Wiki Force Chile group and the Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015, to have the chance to stimulate and encourage volunteers, create community cohesion and commitment, and in general create awareness about the Wikimedia movement in a welcoming environment; to work in collaboration with cultural institutions such as the National Library of Chile; seek for accreditation in at least two sport teams events; organize several wikicontest to take advantage of the material generated by photograph contest in the past and in the upcoming year, and also support the recruitment of newer contributors; and organize a photograph contest about the meals and drinks from Chile.
Additionally, Wikimedia Chile will be able to accomplish its administrative tasks, some of them as requested in our bylaws, this involves the organization of our general assembly, secure participation of regular and board members on relevant activities, sending materials, as the formal letters for participation on the Assembly as well, to our members, pay our bank fees and replenish office supplies.
Do you expect to reach your project's goal? Why or why not?
In general terms Wikimedia Chile expect to reach its goals. We have experimented some delays, but we believe that we can execute most of our activities.

Progress towards targets and goalsEdit

Project metrics

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Administrative Tasks
The objective is to replenish office supplies and pay the bank and transfer fees, and help organize the General Assembly and board meetings, so the Chapter can normally function, fulfilling its bylaws and responsibilities, and also renew our site domains and acquire some fixed assets. All the prior will sustain and allow the execution of the projects and activities planned for this period.
  1. Completion of Administrative Tasks
      Doing...
The bank fees are covered until the present date, also the Wikimedia Chile websites are running under a new web hosting, and the domains for wikimediachile.cl and wikilovesmonuments.cl are guaranteed for 2 more years. Office articles and other small purchases were done during the first semester of 2015.
Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile[1] [2]
The project's objective is to seek, obtain, record and digitally publish birth and death certificates of the Presidents and Governors of Chile and make them digitally available in order to preserve historical data (and allow Chileans and foreigners that want to use them) through Wikimedia Commons, as well as complete historical information relevant to Chile. The amount of certificates yet to acquire is 112, and according to the dates, 25 of them should be under the tuition of the Civil Registry and Identification, most of the remaining registries are located in the Archive of the Archbishopric of Santiago, and this would require further development.
  1. Acquiring the Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile: 25 (Civil Registry) + 87 (Archbishopric of Santiago).  Doing...
  2. Uploading the certificates to Commons (if #1 is accomplished).  Doing...
  3. Transcribing the certificates in Wikisource (if #2 is accomplished).  Doing...
For the project Birth and Death Registries of Leadership Seats of Chile 24 documents were requested and finally 23 were provided through a formal channel, from the latter, we could only use 22, since one of them was a copy from a modern certificate, and not a copy from the original. From this documents, 6 were uploaded on 2014, and 4 of them during April, 2015, leaving 12 documents pending to be uploaded.
Official Speeches of Salvador Allende[3]
The Official Speeches of Salvador Allende (former president of Chile) is a project currently under development at Wikisource, supported by the Salvador Allende Foundation (FSA). FSA has in its archive near 217 different speeches (in some 247 documents), which consist of the surviving transcripts of his official speeches, since the rest have been destroyed or are missing. We developed a pilot project, consisting in ten speeches donated by the FSA. The files, originally provided in .PDF format, were converted to DjVu, and uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. Afterwards the articles for the speeches were created in Wikisource, so they could be corrected and validated. We launched this project in stages: The pilot project included 10 speeches, the second stage 15 and the third one 25, which reached 50 speeches in total, therefore almost a 23% of the material available in the archive of the FSA has been freely licensed. In January of 2015, we held a meeting with the Salvador Allende Foundation, and a preliminary release of 400 pages of material to be freely licensed during 2015 was scheduled. We decided to change how we speak about and measure the releases, since the work in Wikisource is made by pages, and the latter is variable from speech to speech.
  1. Acquiring the speeches of Salvador Allende: 400 pages.  Pending
  2. Scanning the speeches (if #1 is accomplished).  Pending
  3. Uploading the speeches to Commons (if #2 is accomplished).  Pending
  4. Transcribing the speeches in Wikisource (if #3 is accomplished).  Pending
All 25 speeches from the third stage have been corrected —composed of a total of 473 pages—, but only 12 of them have been validated, including a validation of 173 pages. This leaves around 300 pages left to be validated. We have seen that things have been moving slower than expected on Spanish Wikisource, which we believe is the major reason for not having being able to close the third stage of the project —that started in 2014— yet. We are also waiting to see if the interns of the Salvador Allende Foundation can help us to validate the third stage of the project and start the fourth.
Wikipedia in University[4] [5]
This would be the fourth version of this project organized by Wikimedia Chile. The pilot project consisted of teaching law students in Coquimbo, from the Catholic University of the North, on editing Wikipedia, and 7 new articles were created by 39 students as a part of their regular curriculum. In the second version of the project, held in University of Valparaíso, 16 new articles were collectively created by 116 students. Also, after conversations that started in July, a third version of this project was implemented. Wikimedia Chile gave a speech/editing workshop by September, and by the end of 2014 two courses in Universidad de Chile, one called “Science and Technology on Urban Space”, and the second one “The Power of Science”, implemented Wikipedia as an educational tool. In the first course 12 individual students created 12 articles (but one was taken down); and the second course had 46 students distributed in groups of 6, working in articles, from that work, 6 articles where created, but only 2 articles remained. The plan is to organize a fourth version of this initiative during 2015, for a course of about 50 students, where each of them must create an article that does not exist in Spanish Wikipedia.
  1. Engaging with a new cohort of students in a University we already executed the project.   Accomplished
  2. Increase the amount of new editors: 50 new editors and articles.   Accomplished
  3. Increase the amount of new or improved articles (if #2 is accomplished).   Accomplished
  4. Increase the amount of trained editors (if #2 is accomplished).   Accomplished
During the first semester of 2015 there were two courses that participated in this project. The first one was "Introduction to Technology", held in University of Chile, and the second course was "Interactive Communication" in the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (first time joining this project). The first course had 48 students (and new users) that created and improved almost 40 articles in Spanish Wikipedia; in the second one, 20 students created 20 new articles about national monuments and museums of Chile. With these two courses we achieved this project's goals for the whole year, with a total of 68 new editors and 60 new articles.
Wikimedia Chile Outreach: During the organization of our projects and activities, were we tried a wide variety of activities related to outreach, we decided to focus on four aspects:
  • a) The first one is to organize at least 8 Wikipedia editing workshops, edit-a-thons and or Wiki Takes events.
  • b) The second one are the usage of promotional materials (T-shirts, printed material)
  • c) Increase the participation in Meetup group Wiki Force Chile
  • d) The fourth is to facilitate the handling of our social media and outreach tools.

  1. Organize Wikipedia editing workshops, edit-a-thon and or wiki takes events: 8 events.   Accomplished
  2. Expand public awareness for the Wikimedia movement through Promotional Materials   Doing...
  3. Increase the amount of people participating in Wiki Force Chile: up to 100 participants.   Accomplished
  4. Increase the amount of people following us in our social media: up to 2,000 likes in Facebook and up to 1,500 followers in twitter.   Doing...
  5. Increase the amount of Wikimedia Chile members: up to 40 members.   Doing...
Until July 2015, Wikimedia Chile organized three edit-a-thons, each one of them with a focus on a specific topic: International Women's Day, National Heritage Day and a complementary activity during the SpaceApps event, and held 6 workshops. Social media has helped us to spread more information about Wikimedia Foundation projects, as well as Wikimedia Chile events. The number of followers in our social networks, according to our predictions for 2015, has been constantly increasing. The Meetup group Wiki Force Chile reached 100 members on July 4, 2015. By July 31, we have 1,150 followers in Twitter and 1,402 followers in Facebook. For the second semester, we are expecting the number of users in our Meetup group to raise and we are planning to start using a social management tool, to boost the ratio of followers in our social media channels.
Wikimedian in Residence in the National Library of Chile
This is a new project derived from our future agreement with the National Library of Chile. The idea is to work in collaboration with the National Library of Chile, improving articles in Wikipedia, and uploading material (books, images and maps) that belong to the public domain, which is archived in the National Library and scanned by Memoria Chilena, onto Wikimedia Commons, and Wikisource. At the present moment 76 images and 1 document have been uploaded thanks to this collaboration. We hope to upload and transcribe an average of 2 documents per month (a total of 10 documents), and improve about 20 articles commonly chosen, and create a manual in Spanish, as a guide for Wikimedians in Residence.
  1. Selecting documents to be uploaded: 10 documents.   Doing...
  2. Uploading the documents to Commons (if #1 is accomplished).   Doing...
  3. Transcribing the documents in Wikisource (if #2 is accomplished).   Pending
  4. Selecting articles to be created or improved: 20 articles.   Doing...
  5. Improving or creating articles (if #4 is accomplished).   Doing...
Thanks to the agreement with the National Library of Chile, between February and July of 2015, a “Wikipedian in Residence” attended once a week to the National Library of Chile, to help develop and create Wikipedia articles about or related to the National Library itself. Also, as part of the residence, 208 images ranging from public spaces to areas of restricted access of the National Library were photographed and 3 documents (composed of 168 pages) where uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. For the second semester, we are expecting to upload over 220 images to Wikipedia and the improvement of 2 articles (in English and Spanish), through the uploaded pictures and the day-to-day engagement of the intern in the National Library.
Trans-Andean Edit-a-thon
This is an idea proposed by Wikimedia Argentina, to organize a bi-national editing event in Mendoza, Argentina. Preliminary conversations have already been held by Wikimedia Argentina with the National University of Cuyo, to organize this event, and also a date has been proposed, between September 30th and October 4. We would like to make possible for 10 volunteers to attend to this event, to take pictures and to improve articles that cross the common history of Chile and Argentina. To keep the costs as low as possible, we plan to travel by bus.
  1. Participating in the event itself: 10 attendants.  Pending
  2. Collaborating with an Editing Workshop: 10 attendants.  Pending
  3. Selecting articles to be created or improved on the Edit-a-thon: 10 attendants.  Pending
  4. Improving or creating articles (if #3 is accomplished).  Pending
  5. Taking and uploading pictures to Wikimedia Commons: 100 images.  Pending
This activity was planned for the second semester of 2015, due to the bad weather that occurs in Chilean-Argentinian border during the winter season. We are planning to execute this event in the spring, around September or October.
Wikimedia Chile Conference 2015
This project is a fusion of two activities that were not executed during our last grant, and we decided to postpone for 2015. Over that, we decided to add an additional element to the prior two. The overall activity consists in organizing a conference with four blocks: The future of Wikipedia, Free knowledge, GLAM and Education. We already reserved the room for the Conference since December, and the the National Library of Chile donated the cost of it, therefore, the venue will represent no disbursement for the project. We also have invited three keynoters, and already started reaching out people, to target the right audience for each track. We would like to reach the widest amount and types of cultural and educational institutions and people that might be interested in the world, conceptions and ideas of the Wikimedia movement, and within this group find people that is willing to engage in Wikimedia, GLAM and/or Educational activities, and hopefully would like to establish long-term, strong relations.
  1. Organizing the event itself.   Accomplished
  2. Increasing the number of people participating from the conference: 135 attendants (Up to 540 contacts in the best case scenario).   Accomplished
  3. Creating a database of contacts: 135 contacts (Up to 540 contacts in the best case scenario).   Accomplished
  4. Increasing the number of participating institutions: 30 institutions.   Partially accomplished
  5. Making agreements or implementing concrete projects: 1 to 3 GLAM institutions, and 3 to 7 teachers or universities.   Partially accomplished
A three-day Conference was organized by Wikimedia Chile, where 173 people attended. The first day 50 people arrived for block II, the second day 34 attended to block III, and 53 to block IV, and the third and last day 36 people for blocks V-VI. The conference took place during the last days of March and was held in the National Library of Chile. Numerous organizations, educational groups and people with interest in the Wikimedia Foundation projects, attended the conference. They were all introduced to the different features and projects of the foundation. During the event, the attendants were told about the benefits, challenges and means to collaborate with free-content projects. Additionally, we presented the achievements through GLAM, outreach and educational projects. The main goal of the event was achieved, allowing us to reach different people from educational areas and general public, as well. In addition, many cultural organizations engaged with us, creating a link between them and the Wikimedia Foundation. We are expecting to generate new content with them, through the creation of articles, magazines, documentation and so on. Finally, it is important to point out that during the conference, we signed an agreement with the National Library of Chile that will allow us to create an alliance for future events.
Sport and other Events Accreditation
This project consists in purchasing a professional camera to be able to get accreditation for sports and other events. We asked Wikimedia Spain, and Wikimedia Switzerland to share their experiences with the projects they developed on this matter, and what things should taken into consideration. Following this advice, we realized the importance of owning a professional equipment to be able to be granted accreditation for events. The main objective is to obtain accreditation for two, third division football teams as a starter; this decision was also based on the information presented by both Chapters. The idea is to build reputation and experience and in turn, show this to get accreditation to more exclusive events, either of higher divisions, other sports, and or other types of events. The overall goal is to document two different third division Chilean football teams and their sporting events.
  1. Sending formal letters: 32 third division football teams.  Pending
  2. Acquiring access to teams: 2 out of 32 (if #1 is accomplished).  Pending
  3. Obtain images: 100 per club (players, trainers, offices, stadium and at least one match), for 200 in total (if #2 is accomplished).  Pending
  4. Upload new pictures to Wikimedia Commons: 200 images (if #3 is accomplished).  Pending
Postponed for the second semester of 2015. A camera was purchased and designated for the Wikimedia Chile member that is in charge of this project. Most of the work related to this project is expected to be produced during the second semester of 2015.
Wikicontests
We want to organize 4 different wikicontests. We realized through the organization of different photograph contests, that we were able to gather 11,000 images. Sadly, a vast majority of those images remain unused, for example: for the Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 contest, 7.35% of all images are being used; and for Wiki Tour Chile 2014 contest, 3.49% of all images are being used, also, a lot of images have not being categorized. We believe this is an opportunity to take advantage of this material, and organize contest to create articles, incorporate images to Wikipedia, and other sister projects, and categorize images. We also plan to make a contest for new editors, and hope to be able to seduce people out there, that have curiosity, but never made that extra step to edit. Also, this is project is also linked to the next one, since we decided not to make more photograph contests not linked to a wikicontest, that uses the material gathered through it.
  1. Organizing the contest itself: 4 wikicontests.
  2. Increase the amount of images used and categorized from Wiki Loves Monuments 2012-2013: up to 400 new images used (if #1 is accomplished).
  3. Increase the amount of images used and categorized from Wiki Tour Chile 2014: up to 500 new images used and categorized (if #1 is accomplished).
  4. Incorporate and categorize the new images from Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile Photo Contest: 10% of images uploaded used and categorized (if #1 is accomplished).
Since we organized several activities, we decided to postpone the organization of this contests for the second semester of 2015.
Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile Photo Contest
Inspired by the success of Wiki Tour Chile 2014, the contest WikiCheese organized by Wikimedia France, and the poem by Pablo de Rokha "Epopeya de las Comidas y Bebidas de Chile", we decided to create a photograph contest called "Wikiepic of the Meals and Drinks of Chile". The idea is to obtain images of all kinds of food and drinks of Chile, upload them to commons, and then create or improve articles in Wikipedia and Wikivoyage. Therefore this project should be linked to a wikicontest.
  1. Organizing the contest itself.   Doing...
  2. Attract participants to participate in the contest: 400 participants (if #1 is accomplished).
  3. Upload new pictures within the frame of the contest: 3,000 images (if #2 is accomplished).
Planned for the second semester of 2015. We are working in a proposal that is going to be presented to different photographic associations. Hopefully, they will help us organize the contest and pick the winners.


Global MetricsEdit
