Hi there!

Far up north here in Sweden we have more than ice and elks! This month
(1st-31st May) you are invited to take part in a writing
contest<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Umepedia_Challenge>about the
northern city of
Umeå <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ume%C3%A5>, which currently is the European
Capital of Culture<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Capital_of_Culture>
.

These 40 important
articles<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Umepedia_Challenge/list>are
needed in your language as we hope to place QRpedia signs next to
these
landmarks in Umeå during 2014, making it easier for tourists and immigrants
to enjoy the city's history and culture. This will make Umeå the first
Wikipedia city in the Nordic countries! :-) Our first two signs are already
placed on the city's two museums: Västerbottens
museum<https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Västerbottens_museum>and on
Guitars
– the Museum <https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitars_%E2%80%93_the_Museum>(which
also have 18 QRpedia signs inside in its exhibition).

The contest is off to a fantastic start with plenty of contributions! But
with 27 days left there is plenty of time to get into the contest and win
some great prizes<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Umepedia_Challenge/prizes>!
So do join the challenge!

Please help us spread the word about #Umepedia in your communities and on
social media!

Kind regards,

John
