Contest log Edit
  • 18 April: What a start! Only 16 hours into the Challenge and we already have 22 participants and more than 33,000 bytes added. Welcome to all of you!
Hopefully the rest of the UNESCO images will be upload shortly. Until then, perhaps you can find some nice images from Syria to include in articles? Wikimedia Sverige and Wikimedia Italia worked together to upload many images from Palmyra and other World Heritage Sites in Syria through a partnership with two Italian GLAMs. You can find the images from GAR here and from DecARC here.
