Welcome to Amical Wikimedia monthly report of May 2016


Barcelona International Comic Convention Wikiproject[edit]

In occasion of the 34th edition of the Barcelona International Comic Convention (from the 5th to the 8th of may), Amical Wikimedia organized once again the Comic Wikiproject. As result, within one week 51 new articles related to the world of the comic were created and more than 60 pictures of the Convention were uploaded in Commons. The association Ficomic, organisator of the event, granted to Amical a press credential, which allowed us to attend all the acts at the convention and make a lot of pictures. Most of them are from cartoonists, authors and comic experts with an already existing article in Wikipedia but without a picture till the moment. For example: Antoni Guiral (ca), Josep Maria Blanco (ca), Jaume Rovira (ca), Javi de Castro (ca), Paolo Serpieri, Santiago Fernández (ca), etc. The participation in the project was similar to the previous years and with new users, which makes this wikiproject successuf and, for the moment, there is no reason to cancel it.

Just some pictures:
