  • Support Support, of course. Each year new works come into Public Domain, and so this contest is regularly being organized. (See 2016, 2017/2018.) It's important to widely announce it again in order both to invite participants to the contest and to increase awareness about public domain among Wikimedia projects users. Dr Bug (Vladimir V.
