GLAM-WIKI bursaries & GLAM Challenge

Two pieces of GLAM-WIKI news.

The first is pretty cool: Wikimedia Australia is offering travel bursaries to Australian & New Zealand Wikimedians for attending GLAM-WIKI. Wikimedians represent! Come and be part of the collective face of ‘Wikipedia’ for lots of fancy museum peeps. The bursaries will cover your return airfare to Canberra. See Liam’s email for more details about how to apply.

The second is also pretty cool, at least I think so: Wikimedia Australia is sponsoring an editing “challenge” called GLAM Challenge.

(Note the dates on this image are not accurate … :)) You must declare that you intend to take part by July 24th, and then you have up to July 31st to make your edits for the Challenge. There are prizes! And although the theme is “Australian GLAM”, you don’t need to be Australian to take part. It’s quite open, so feel free to be creative in applying the theme.
