Wiki Loves Caucasus 2019/Idea

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The idea of holding Wiki Loves Caucasus was born during the Wikimedia Summit 2019 in Berlin, when a non-formal meeting of Wikimedia representatives (Chapter/User Group) from the Caucasus and surrounding countries took place. During the discussion with the representatives of Wikimedia Russia, Wikimedia UG Azerbaijan, Wikimedia Armenia and Wikimedia UG Georgia, we came to the conclusion that it is necessary to hold regional competitions that unite the region as a single system. We decided to hold contests in Wikipedia in the languages of the Caucasus (Armenian, Azerbaijani, Georgian, Russian, Lezgi, Chechenian and etc.). Competition will be held in other languages that don't belong to the Caucasus region, they will composes an international level. The theme of the first competition will be the topic of GLAM. The competition according to the plan will be held in October-November of this year, there will be different prizes for the winners.
