THE WIKI LOVES PUBLIC ART 2014 CONTEST HAS BEEN POSTPONED

The team working on the international contest has took the decision that we will postpone the Wiki Loves Public Art contest for 2014 and review the possibility again next year. We have reached this conclusion as there are a number of issues that have to be solved for the contest to make sense, and each of them are a potential show stopper. The issues are:

  • Legal issues.
  • Lack of strong international partners/sponsors.
  • Technical issues.

A bunch of tools already exist, but they are designed and set up for use in the Wiki Loves Monuments environment. Have a look at the tools page from WLM 2013 to find useful tools to modify, adapt or build upon. Feel free to add tools on this page when they are working in the Public Art environment, or add things to the wishlist. The database will be freely available, so that people can build tools onto it, and re-use the data. That way, you can for example project the artworks on a map, or make other additional work with it.

General[edit]

All tools should follow these general guidelines

  • The tool should be open source.
  • The source should be published.
  • Keep internationalization in mind.
  • Preferably the tools should be developed at the toolserver or on WMF labs.

Wishlist[edit]

One of the important wishes from WLM is an easier tool for mass uploading, the logical choice seems to build upon Commonist, although this might still be hard for relatively new users
