Grants:TPS/Toresetre/Concert photography at Q25
This had been a submission to the Wikimedia Participation Support process, but was withdrawn or otherwise cancelled (not denied).
I am an active Wikipedian that are currently creating high quality photographic portraits of artists and notable people for Wikimedia Commons. I have covered events, festivals and concerts in Oslo, Norway, as you can see at Wikimedia Commons. I plan to cover 4-6 musical festivals in the summer of 2016. One of these festivals, Q25, requires travel to Kristiansand and I apply for support to cover travel cost here. The festival has already granted me a photo pass.
Goal and expected impact
As a result of me traveling to the festival, there will be more photographs of musical artists available on Wikimedia Commons and more Wikipedia articles will be illustrated by high quality portraits.
- Travel (round trip train fare from Oslo to Kristiansand): NOK 850
- Accommodation: NOK 850 per night x 3 nights = NOK 2550
Wikimedia Norge strongly endorses this application. I can confirm that the music festival Q25 has granted Tore Sætre photo accrenditation, as well as several other music festivals taking place in the city of Oslo this summer. You can read more about this photo project that adds high quality images to commons in the May edition of the GLAM Newsletter.WMNOastrid (talk)
