Hi everybody, As you might be aware, the Britain Loves Wikipedia <http://britainloveswikipedia.org/> hunt has been making waves recently.
I was wondering if we Indian Wikipedians can launch an initiative to get photographs for hundreds of India-related articles that don't have even one photograph. While there have been efforts like Wikipedia Takes Chennai in the past, they have been too locality-centric to attract hundreds of photographs. We need something bigger! We have a huge number of articles without photographs in categories such as Universities and colleges in India, Companies of India, Buildings and structures in India, Cities and towns in India, Festivals in India etc. There are thousands of Indians online -- imagine if they can contribute a photograph each about their city, village, workplace, festivals, cuisine, school, college or alma mater! I'm sure a lot of bloggers, Facebook users and Twitter users will be willing to contribute photographs to Wikipedia articles. We just need to reach out to them. I've created a page at Wikipedia:WikiProject India/India Loves Wikipedia, where we can brainstorm about this proposal. Please do share your thoughts, and add this page to your watchlist to keep track of updates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_India/India_Loves_Wikipedia Utkarshraj Atmaram http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Utcursch _______________________________________________ Wikimediaindia-l mailing list Wikimediaindiaemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaindia-l
