Photohunt on the D Festival in Dojran[edit]

By Македонец

"D Festival" is the biggest open air festival that is organized every July in the lake resort and town of Dojran in southeastern part of Macedonia where several Macedonian and foreign popular artist and musicians are preforming on a three day program on 4 different stages including the main stage, the Mosquito stage in the camp where most of the attendants of the festival are setting up tents, lakeside stage and church stage in the old church of St. Elijah above Dojran. This year we used the chance within the project of Photohunt through a lottery to grant a ticket for the all stages of the D Festival with a task for the lucky winner to take photographs of the artist, bands performing in order to create and improve articles on the Wikipedia on Macedonian and other languages. Regarding that the applicants who did not have an account on Wikimedia had the advantage for being chosen for granting the ticket and conducting the photohunt, the newly registered User:Ntnmstchk have been granted the ticket and made dozens of high quality photographs which are in process of uploading and will be used for creating and improving articles in the forthcoming period.
