June-August[edit]

University of Prishtina, Kosovo, asked FLOSSK/WoALUG to help them organize a photo competition between 4-11 July during their International Summer University. UPISU attracts about 800 students, most of them come from Kosovo and other countries in South-East Europe. This was our first project working with Prishtina University and provided an opening for future cooperation with them.
  • Wikivoyage editathon on Kosovo topics - 14 mostly first-time wiki editors, made contributions to Wikivoyage articles related to Kosovo on 3 June. Articles edited the Kosovo, Prizren, Gjakova, Peja and Mitrovica articles, along with articles about the neighboring countries that related to Kosovo. Participants proof-read, updated, illustrated, mapped and added content to articles. Some participants went on to work on articles beyond the editathon. Editathon was organized in conjunction with FLOSSK.
