Title: Ideas for Wiki Loves Monuments, local contests, partnerships and usability
Speaker: Ferdinando Traversa
Abstract: This talk will showcase some strategies adopted in Apulia (region of Italy) for Wiki Loves Monuments and their results. Also, the ideas behind Wiki Loves Monuments Italy mobile app will be presented. The goal is to share experiences, give suggestions and gather feedback on how participation can be increased.

Wiki Loves Monuments has been organised in Italy since 2012. In 2019, the local volunteers of Wikimedia Italy started the local edition for Apulia, starting a successful series of partnerships with local organisations and local authorities. The activities of the campaign included photo walks and exhibitions in various towns of the region. This talk will be an opportunity to share some suggestions and gather some feedback to/from other Wiki Loves Monuments organisers.

The second part of the talk will present another case study from Wiki Loves Monuments Italy: the development of a mobile app for uploading photos, which has been used successfully for two edition, and its "making of". The app will be then compared to the other means to participate in the contest, so some final considerations about the ease of getting into the competition and the strategies we could use to attract more participants and more photos.

The two parts are inherently connected by their goals: an increment in participation may be achieved both by increasing the number of offline activities and collaborations (first part) and by simplifying things for participants (second part). This talks aims to stimulate discussions sharing some insights from past successful experiences.
