On December 9, the Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in Ukraine awards ceremony took place in Zabolotnoho State Scientific Architecture and Construction Library (Kyiv). The place was chosen not by chance: the participants of the contest had an opportunity to see the 25 volumes bibliographic index about towns of Ukraine illustrated by their pictures. The ceremony has opened a WLM photo exhibition in the library. There was a discussion about the future of the project in Ukraine after the event itself: Ukraine constantly has thousands of images submitted during the contests, and though it is nice to have them all, it is also very difficult to filter and rate. The organising committee, participants and jury members have discussed a few ways to change the rules of the local contest.

On December 15 the first ever edition of a thematic month on creating articles about women in Ukrainian Wikipedia ended. 442 articles created, 42 articles improved, 53 people took part. On Ocober 16 the Ukrainian Wikipedia had 13,69% of female biographies (18120 articles), at the end of the thematic month: 13,78% (19397 articles). Volunteers have created a design for a cup and Wikimedia Ukraine will provide the cups to the most active contributors during the thematic month. There is a discussion whether it makes sense to run a project Lady in Red on Ukrainian Wikipedia.

On December 16, CEE Spring 2017 in Ukraine awards ceremony took place in Lviv. 1340 articles were submitted by 68 editors. The page with the results of the contest is here: Winners. This year the organisers faced a few problems they could not have solved in time, and as the result, the successful completion of this CEE Spring edition was under the question. Wikimedia Ukraine usually offers the winners of its contest a chance to choose if they want to order a prize or a certificate for an online shop, but there was a trouble with a product one of the participants has ordered, and as a lesson learned that might be a reason to change the whole awarding system and award people only with the certificates in future.

The contest itself took place in November, the organisers and the jury have been working on filtering images and rating them till the end of the month. Ukraine has submitted 65% more images in 2017 than in 2016 році, though less than in 2015. 120 participants took part, 1035 images uploaded. The authors of the winning pictures got certificates for an online shop, there was also a special nomination by a popular science magazine "Kunsht", and the organisers hope that some of the pictures submitted during the contest will be published there.
