Abstract[edit source]

How do you keep WLM interesting for communities and participants alike? Let me share suggestions by going back to the core of the photograph competition.

Description[edit source]

Wiki Loves Monuments has it's own philosophy, ever since the first edition in 2010. Our photo-competitions should be easy, fun, local, help Wikimedia projects, and give quick and visible results. This lightning talk shares some ideas and best practices, and helps you to think creatively about how to revive your edition of Wiki Loves Monuments. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments/Philosophy
