Maybe it’s a cliché, but after the snowy Canada, we definitely would like to present the winners of a more southernly country. Let’s go to Argentina!
Wikimedia Argentina and Wikimedia Ibercoop successfully cooperated to organize Wiki Loves Monuments in this country. They organized a launch event at the University of La Plata at September 3rd and used it not only to present the photo contest, but signed cooperation contracts with the university to digitize public domain work. An example that shows how Wiki Loves Monuments fits like a glove in the wider GLAM activities.
The international organizers are happy to see how active and successful the Spanish-speaking world adopted the contest, hopefully this is a good sign to form a diverse international team to organize Wiki Loves Monuments 2013!
But now let’s have a look at the impressive winner images of Wiki Loves Monuments Argentina:Read more:
The winning image is from the Falkland Islands, which are not internationally recognized as part of Argentina, but rather as a British Overseas Territory. Is this allowed by the rules of the contest?
To clarify on my comment: the Falkland Islands are actually a matter of a sovereignty dispute and some countries do recognise the Argentine position. However, de facto control over the islands is still British, as currently reflected on Wikipedia, and this may make the photo controversial.
The rules require just monument identification. It seems that if your national monument identification system assigns an identifier to the Moon that should be OK…
