A Contest For the UK: Britain Loves Wikipedia Competition Starts 31 January 2010

From the Wikimedia Blog:

Starting 31 January and during the entire month of February 2010, participating museums in Great Britain are joining with people from all ages, backgrounds and communities to celebrate Britain Loves Wikipedia. The public is encouraged to photograph the multitude of national treasures contained in Britainís collections, releasing them under a free license to be used to illustrate Wikipedia articles and much more.

The initiative is being spearheaded by the volunteer chapter based in the United Kingdom, Wikimedia UK. Wikimediaís volunteer chapters (which now number at 27 and continue to grow) support the movement by carrying out fundraising, public outreach, and relationship building in their respective territories.

You can read more about Britain Loves Wikipedia on the Wikimedia UK blog here. If youíre in the UK through the coming month, join up and help grow Wikimediaís collection of freely reusable images and media!
