Dear All, We finished the Sambad's 100 Women Editathon, As the event was of two days, the first day was for training the journalists on “How to write on Wikipedia, Create Account, Upload pictures etc”.. More than 30 journalists and 3 Wikipedians from Bhubaneswar Tungi attended the event on first day.
On second day, All total 23 journalists and 6 Wikipedians from the WikiTungi attended the event. The Wikipedians helped the journalists in writing articles and almost 23 articles were created or improved during the editathon. We shared the WikiTungi concept during the event and the journalists were interested in taking part in Tungi meetups and learn more about Wikipedia. Tanaya Patnaik, the Executive Director of Eastern Media ltd. also announced that the Tungi community in Bhubaneswar can use the "Ama Odisha" office for the meetups. Sambad is also planning for Wiki Training camps in different parts of Odisha, hope we will hear some good news about this. I have some nice stories to share, I will share a broad report of this event in the Wikimedia blog and will write a learning pattern on how the two days event idea worked for this, how Sambad's effort helped in getting some good articles and local community participation made it easy. :) Images from the event are here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Sambad_100_Women_Editathon Media Mentions: 1. http://sambad.in/news/state/sambad-wikipedia-to-host-first-ever-100-women-edit-a-thon-in-india/40857.html 2. https://youtu.be/Nu7X8aIiObY 3. http://sambad.in/news/state/sambad-100-women-wikepedia/41745.html 4. http://odishasuntimes.com/2017/03/19/first-time-in-india-100-women-edit-a-thon-held-in-odisha/ 5. http://odishasuntimes.com/2017/03/15/sambad-wikipedia-to-host-100-women-edit-a-thon-in-odisha/ 6. http://www.utkalnews.in/first-time-india-100-women-edit-thon-held-odisha/ On Fri, 17 Mar 2017 at 10:52 PM, Sydney Poore <sydney.po...@gmail.com> wrote: > Thank you to sharing.
