In this fun and exciting workshop, the organizers will present to CEE communities different sound logos, unpack them, listen to the ones submitted to the Wikimedia sound logo contest, and set the stage for the forthcoming public vote. There is a lot of expertise in the movement when it comes to photography contests and visual logo campaigns, but not a sound logo contest. We see this workshop as an opportunity to bring a new audiovisual layer to our ever growing content. The organizing team is excited to collaborate with CEE communities to identify what the Wikimedia sound logo will be.
- How will this session be beneficial for the communities in the region of Central and Eastern Europe?
The sound logo contest is a global one and we couldn't do it without the communities of CEE region. Attendees will be immersed in an auditory experience and will be informed about the Wikimedia sound logo contest. They will learn how to participate in the voting and will be excited to listen to the submissions from around the world and to cast their vote when the time comes.
