This is the chapters report for Wikimedia Sverige in June 2010.

EventsEdit

  • We sponsored a photohunt in the middle of Sweden (Bergslagssafari) that (so far) resulted in 287 pictures to Commons [1], media attention [2] and inspiration for those involved. A similiar event in the south of Sweden in September is already planned.
  • Meeting with museums about Creative Commons licenses, where Liam Wyatt was invited speaker. Invitation [3], video of Liam's presentation [4], blog about the event [5].
  • For the Wedding of Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden, and Daniel Westling we helped two photographers to get accreditation resulting in lots of good pictures, amongst them this one [6]. They were not the only wikimedians photographing, at least 10 persons have uploaded 277 photos and videos to Commons so far.

SoftwareEdit

  • We bought an OCR-program to help the active contributors on Swedish Wikisource with their scanning/uploading.
