Title: Commons Photographers User Group : Programs & Initiatives
I am an electronics engineer from India. I mostly edit on my home Wiki Hindi Wikipedia, Commons (Contributions), and Wikidata. I am Vice-Chair and Treasurer of the Affiliations Committee, Vice-Chair Commons Photographers User Group founder member of the Hindi Wikimedians User Group, and Ex-EC member of the Wikimedia India chapter. Developing new electronic gadgets, photography, interacting with people, learning new things, listening to Indian classical music, and watching plays are my hobbies. My work I am contributing to Wikipedia and its sister projects for more than 9 years. After attending WikiConference India 2016, and TTT2017, I felt there is a lot of work to do in the field of awareness of Wikipedia among societies and outreach activities so, so other than online editing I am more involved in organizing conferences, meetups, GLAM, online photography competitions like Wiki Love Monuments, Wikipedia Asian Month, etc.

Commons Photographers User Group is an international community of photographers. Commons Photographers is an international cooperative of photography enthusiasts who publish their images under free licenses. We are devoted to transcribing the world visually and having others benefit from our work through Wikipedia and other places that share our values. My talk will focus on a detailed introduction to the community and its initiatives and programs which help the members in their technical skills and the community to grow together. I would also like to know what technical skills our fellow members want to learn and we will conduct a session for them as we had in October: Post Photograph Processing Workshop-1, and recently we have collaborated with CIS A2K for Women’s Month Datathon on Commons (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CIS-A2K/Events/Women%27s_Month_Datathon_on_Commons)
