- Scheduled monuments and other classes to be skipped (for this year, anyway).
- Considered focus on different themes:
- coherent sets
- "non-artistic" architectural photography
- Things to prepare
- Need to figure out what remains to be done!
- Source lists
- Exist in spreadsheets; need to transfer to on-wiki lists.
- Licensing probably clear for England; will need to confirm
- to contributors
- to prospective partners

Notes from last year: https://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_brainstorm/Notes
What happened in previous years? What were we missing? What do we need to do differently in 2013? What should we cover? Listed buildings (Seperate systems in England; Wales; Northern Ireland; Scotland) Scheduled monuments (Seperate systems in England; Wales; Northern Ireland; Scotland) ?Historic parks, gardens, landscapes (Seperate systems in England; Wales; Northern Ireland; Scotland) ?Protected wrecks (UK-wide system) ?War memorials (Is there a central registry?) ?Other "protected areas" (eg SSSI) (Probably not appropriate?) What about overseas territories/dependencies? What systems exist for (eg) Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Falkland Islands? What do we need to prepare for WLM-UK 2013? Infrastructure Source lists Promotion Sponsorship
do we want to do a broad approach and ask for everything? Listed: > grade I and II* = 50k buildings > grade I, II* and II = 500k buildings so I and II* equivalent best bet > A only in Scotland; - skip scheduled monuments - skip everything else - - possibly territories? - - look into lists & communities probably skip war memorials (unless they're otherwise listed)
WHAT TO PREPARE > have datadumps (Multichill) - source lists > need to build onwiki lists (per county?) > > look onwiki and build task list
TODO ALL work out prospective partners/sponsors >https://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Monuments_brainstorm/Notes#Inventory
TODO KATIE - Set up email list
Groups to reach out:(participants) > Archaeology courses; 1st year students as an opportunity to learn about building photography > Photography groups - directly accessing people with technical skills with a camera > Local history/archaeology groups - involving people interested in their local heritage
TODO - contact potential sponsors and people to join judging panel (English Heritage/National Trust representatives etc)
PRIZES - perhaps offer a range? > WLM prizes usually seem to be for most aesthetically pleasing image > Could offer prizes for best architectural/documentary image > Most comprehensive survey of a single building > Most comprehensive collection of an area
