Viquidites Challenge 2016[edit]

From August 23th to August 31th a writing challenge was held in Viquidites (Catalan WIkiquote) to improve the content of Ramon Llull and writers in Catalan, on the occasion of the literary year in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands for this writer and philosopher of the thirteenth century. In collaboration with the CCCLab (Research and Innovation Department of the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona), participants added a total of 546 new quotes about the works of Llull and over 8 different pages, in addition to the page about Narcís-Jordi Aragó i Masó, a prestigious catalan writer who died the day before the beginning of the challenge.

The contest was celebrated on the anniversary date of the project and continues to maintain great results for the third consecutive year, when it was promoted as a celebration of the tenth anniversary.
