Wiki loves monuments promotional video

This video made by Fanny Schertzer and Ludovic Péron demonstrates not only the general workflow of participating, it also brings in a bit of the fascinating „scavenger hunt“ character of Wiki Loves Monuments. Additionally, it has a small amount of cat content.

Subtitles are available in Catalan, Swedish, Chinese, Romanian and English language - however, the video is self-explanatory without text. Well done!

Le Musee Libre presente Wikimedia Commons et Wiki Loves Monuments 2011.ogvEdit

A French video about Commons, Wiki Loves Monuments and Free Content

This french language video by User:BastienGuerry of the Musée libre was created after the contest. It starts a bit earlier in the process by explaining what Wikimedia Commons is and how many images were uploaded during the contest and how free content may interact with Open Street Map. Accompanied by a beautiful animated grafic it leads over to a general appeal how sexy free content is and that it's good for YOU!

The video can be subititled, at the moment it's available only in French – however, it's worth watching even if you don't know the language!

Instructional videos / ScreencastsEdit

Screencast how to convert tables to Wikipedia monuments lists

A German language screencast by elya that demonstrates step-by-step how to convert an Excel or Calc table via csv2template to our template based monuments list in Wikipedia. The example concentrates on a German template and a German municipality, though it could be of general help to show how to use the csv2template converter.
