What problem does this solve?[edit]

Photography contests often attract talented photographers who may not have contributed content to Wikimedia before. Plan programs and events that will motivate talented photographers to continue adding valuable images to Commons.

What is the solution?[edit]

Help photographers access important subjects and quality equipment

  • Reimburse photographers for travel related expenses
  • Arrange for press credentials to photograph events
  • Start an equipment lending program

Plan regular photography events

  • Plan WikiExpeditions and photo tours
  • Start an aerial photography project
  • Invite talented photographers to judge future contests
