Local & Regional Wiki Science Photography Competition

Too many words here and no pictures, so here are some kittens

What is this page for?Edit

This page is where we jot down all the organizational notes related to the contest we are preparing for.

What contest are we preparing for?Edit

We are:

  1. Launching a local version of Wiki Science Photography Competition in Tunisia & hopefully Saudi Arabia.
  2. Re-running the local competition in Egypt for the second year (Read about the first run here).
  3. Launching regional competition (inter-Arab countries).

DELETED 4. Giving the regional winners the opportunity to participate in the international competition.

Who is organizing this?Edit

- Reem Al-Kashif & Kamal El-Gazzar (Egypt)

- Sami Mlouhi (Tunisia)

What are we doing now?Edit

  1. Trying to find out when does the international contest take place.

Update: Unfortunately, there will be no international contest this year. However, there are several local contests in countries like Russia, Ukraine, and Ireland. This gives us a good time to prepare.

  1. Reaching out to Wikimedians in different countries in the Arab World region.
  2. Considering the funds we would need for running the local contests.
  3. Thinking of the rules & prizes.

Work scheduleEdit
