Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
Since some years, the photographers of the german speaking comunity are very active. And it seems to be a characteristic for germans to bring such things in ordered structures, what happens in particular since 2012, very often with support of Wikimedia Deutschland. Never before these structures worked that good as in 2014. German Wikipediand participated at actions as
  • Wiki Loves Monuments
  • Wiki Loves Earth

but also there were other structures as

  • Festivalsommer (Festival summer)
  • Wiki oves Parliaments (in regional german parliaments but also at the national "Bundestag" and as an international project at the European parliament in Strasbourg)
  • Photographing at the German Bundestag Election in 2014
  • a lot of smaller, but not minor projects, so for example "Wiki loves Cheese Cologne" or as part of projects as "GLAM on tour". There are spottive events, archaeological photo tours and so on.

At the end I would like to share our experiences with those Wikimedians, who maybe still not thought about, what all is possible with the Name "Wikipedia" behind us.

  • GLAM Outreach
