Sj (and sannse) are planning a writing competition to be held at Wikimania. This page is a discussion of what we need to arrange for this.

About the contest[edit]

There will be categories for concepts, current events, people/places/things, and collections/lists/quotes/other. There will also be two extra categories: one for content created about the conference's topics or its vicinity, and one for improv articles researched and written during a short period of time at the conference itself.

Rules[edit]

  • Submissions can be entered for one category only.
  • Submissions must be your own work (teams allowed)
  • Submissions should be suitable for use on one or more Wikimedia projects
  • Submissions must be licensed under the GFDL, multi licensed including the GFDL, or released into the public domain.
  • Submissions must be fully copyright compliant (e.g., there should be no copyright concerns about the subject of the media)
  • Submissions may not have been uploaded to a Wikimedia project prior to Jan 1, 2005
  • The closing date for entries in the first categories is 1 August 2005.
  • Non-text content:
    • Images should be submitted as .jpg files where possible
      • Photos should be suitable for printing at 20 X 30cm. Audio and video should be no more than 10 MB in size after compression
    • Video should be submitted as .mpeg or any open video format
  • Consideration will be given to the choice of subject, with unusual or difficult-to-obtain subject matter being given extra credit, but the quality of the submission will be the primary consideration
