2018 was the year that Wikimedia TN User Group launched the creation of its Creative Commons section . This new project aims to defend works under CC licenses, setting up partnerships with governmental and non-governmental institutions to make their publications, texts and photos available for users and facilitate the share of information with the respect of copyrights and finally it aims to advocate for an open data and open knowledge inside the Tunisian Wikimedia community.

Tunisia national ice hockey team photosEdit

The Tunisian user group has reached out the Tunisian association of ice hockey to take photos for the national team. The realization of this task was at that time (April 2018) almost impossible since Tunisia doesn't have a federation for this game (the application was in progress), just an association, and also because the team is training outside the country. So the current president of the Tunisian association has kindly given us 14 photos and putting them under CC licenses was our responsibility. At the end, we got successfully the OTRS tickets for the given pictures.

  • The outcome of this initiative : 14 photos.
  • Members and personalities :
    • Radhouane Bousrih, the original photograph
    • Habib M'henni, OTRS approval
    • Sami Mlouhi, contacting the author of photos and uploading them on Wikimedia Commons
