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.

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.

Thanks and Regards
