I'm Peter Benjamin Meyer. For Wikimedia & chapter purposes I can be reached at peter.meyer@wikidc.org.

I'm on the board of directors of this chapter, last elected in Nov 2016. I'm focusing on the chapter's board business and participating in and hosting edit-a-thons.

My regular user page is on the English Wikipedia.

Scientific photography contest possibility 2017

  • local winners must be announced in January 2018 at the latest and international jury must have the list of the local winner by the second week of January.
  • We hope to announce the overall intl winners in February.
  • In the international competition there are 5 categories you can submit the winners, but locally it will be up to you on how many images you feature.
  • In Estonia where this competition started there are special prizes. Companies provide them. US chapters might want/need to do that.
  • Competition subpages have mostly been on Wikipedia. Example: https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipeedia:Teadusfoto_2015
  • US chapters could also propose 1-2 members for the international jury.
  • our chapter could organize this competition for the United States!
  • the contest itself will take place in November?
  • would you need the results of the US competition provided to the international jury, or any other schedule constraints that we should know about?
  • Would you also be looking to us for funding the prizes for the US completion, or do you have a different plan in place for that?
  • Science photo competition is coming again in this November: http://www.wikisciencecompetition.org/
  • Based on the last competition in 2015 it's reasonable to assume that there could be ca 10 000 participants and over 50 000 submissions this time.
  • there's a need to find enough local organizers who would take care of local country-based sub-competitions.
  • June contacts from Ivo
  • The task is relatively simple: there has to be someone, who would promote the competition locally and set up a jury to select the local winners.
  • Any interest in Wikimedia District of Columbia about organizing this competition in the USA?

Done!
