*Wikimedia Community Ireland Newsletter – October 2017*

*Wiki Science*

We are very excited to announce that Ireland will be taking part in Wiki
Science <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wiki_Science_Ireland_2017>
for the first time this year. Wiki Science is a photo competition looking
for images under 5 broad categories relating to science: people in science,
microscopy images, non-photographic media, image sets, and a general
category. In Ireland we will also be awarding a sixth prize for an image of
Women in STEM. We will be announcing more details over the coming weeks,
and if you have any suggestions, thoughts or ideas on this exciting
initiative do get in contact!

We will be continuing our editing events in TOG on Wednesday 25 October
