Listed on Commons:Partnerships, but not included here: Commons:Picswiss - not a GLAM project, though very useful, especially in the first years when there were no other free pictures of objects shown. These were the first photos for many Wikipedia articles about Swiss topics. However, as only "preview" images of very low resolution were released under a free license in this project, the aim should now be to replace Picswiss images wherever possible with current, high-resolution photos by Wikimedians/Wikipedians.
