On 20 November 2017 GLAM Macedonia volunteers and the employees of the State Archives of Republic of Macedonia held an edit-a-thon together. After several weeks of negotiation about the themes and searching the materials, the participants of edith-a-thon set the date and started to work together. The materials were provided by the Archives employees.
As a result, six Wikipedians created 11 new articles about partisans and monuments related to the WWII. This edit-a-thon was organized by Wikipedian in Residence at the Archives.
Wiki Loves Food 2017 - Photographic competition
Following the preparations during the previous month, on the 1st of November, we opened Wiki loves photographic contest, that we decided to focus on the food, especially on traditional Macedonian and regional dishes and cuisines. In previous years, Shared Knowledge have organized Wiki Loves Earth and Monuments photographic contest with significant success and this year it was decided that Shared Knowledge will organize Wiki Loves Food competition for the first time, which is in fact only the second Wiki Loves Food contest organized world wide, after its establishment by Wikimedia India in 2015. The contest was completed with 915 images uploaded by 67 registered contestants. By midd December, the jury composed of a professional photographer, a professional cook and a experienced member of the Wiki-community will choose the winning photographs which will be awarded at a special ceremony jointly organized with Slow Food Macedonia.
@Македонец: the Wiki Loves Food project sounds really great! Its always interesting to see what variety of different kinds of projects make there way into This Month in GLAM! Would you be interested in creating a case study as part of the Case studies campaign? We would love to be able to highlight more different tactics related to "Wiki Loves" events, and your work to do outreach with local food organizations seems really interesting!
