Hello all! Greetings from Odia Wikipedia community!
I am happy to share that the Odia Wikipedians have succesfully forged a partnership with Bhubaneswar Development Authority to conduct the Bhubaneswar Heritage edit-a-thon. This edit-a-thon is aimed to improve Bhubaneswar's digital presence – and establish Bhubaneswar as a QRpedia city. With this edit-a-thon, Bhubaneswar will be the first city in India to install QRpedia codes in all of its heritage monuments. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Bhubaneswar_Heritage_Edit-a-thon(page under construction) Bhubaneswar, also known as the "Temple City of India" has nearly 300 ancient temples of the Kalinga style architecture that dates back to the late 6th century. This edit-a-thon will happen in two phases, In the first phase, the BDA will release images and information of all state and ASI-protected monuments under CC license to improve Wikipedia articles. The second phase will be for unprotected monuments. This edit-a-thon will take place globally in the month of August or September. The BDA will provide souvenirs from Odisha to the Top 3 International and National (Indian) contributors. I request interested Wikimedians to please sign up for this edit-a-thon and help Odia Wikipedians to make this project a success. I will update other details on the User Talk page of interested volunteers. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Bhubaneswar_Heritage_Edit-a-thon/Participants Thanks and Regards -- ----------- *Sailesh Patnaik* "*ଶୈଳେଶ ପଟ୍ଟନାୟକ*" Programme Associate, Access To Knowledge Centre for Internet and Society Phone: +91-7537097770 *LinkedIn* : https://www.linkedin.com/in/sailesh-patnaik-551a10b4 *Twitter* : @saileshpat "Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
