Wiki Loves Monuments 2013[editar]

Wiki Loves Monuments México ended with a total of 6,479 images contributed by almost 629 male and female photographers, competing with images showing a great panoramic view of the national monuments. In addition to the experience in the contest, this represented several achievements for Wikimedia México:

  • The contest represented an additional experience through the organization of workshops (one of them sponsored by Fundación Pedro Meyer) and seven photowalks (two of them in Mexico City, four in the city of Puebla, one in the city of Guadalajara). About 150 participants attended these tours. In Mexico City, several attendants asked to participate during 2014 in addition to WLM, which will be organized.
  • In order to make reflections about free culture in Mexico, WLM invited on September 21 six activists and researchers of free culture and the architectural heritage to a panel: Enrique César, Ulises Kentros, Alan Lazalde, Mayra Mendoza, Irene Soria and Eneas de Troya. This panel was organized at UNAM's Chopo University Museum. A general status of free culture in Mexico was raised, the concept of monument was questioned, and notions such as virtual monument on the web were even included. Other reflections were made about the value of sharing the artistic work and how it is possible to generate profitability and digital altruism models by means of free licenses such as Creative Commons. The need was established to continue these reflections during 2014.
