Relatório anual

This report focuses on Wikimedia Portugal's activities from 1 January to 31 December 2022.

This year was marked by the return of face-to-face activities after the constraints caused by the covid-19 pandemic were progressively lifted. Another milestone was the effect that the hiring of human resources had on the association and its relationship with the outside world, in particular the work of Wikimedian-in-residence with the academic world, as well as the hiring of a project manager who made the association more agile and more active.



Wikimedian in Residence


The hiring of a wikimedian in residence, in addition to the support given to the E-Viterbo project, completed in December 2022, has made it possible to develop a series of activities with the FCSH academic community and beyond. The final report is being finalised, with the data and metrics of the activities produced and the impact achieved.

Also as part of the work of Wikimedian in Residence, a Survey on training needs was carried out. Wikimedia in Cape Verde, the results of which will be presented in 2023.

Attracting new contributors


With the aim of improving the content on Portuguese music on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, Wiki Loves Portuguese Music was created. This project received support from the FCSH right from the start, namely from Arquivo José Mário Branco, with which the first activity was carried out, and from Antena 1. As well as improving the content, this project also aims to:

  • increase the level of technical knowledge of editors, through workshops and specific training sessions; for example, how to create the various information boxes for Wikipedia articles, how to create categories in Wikipedia and Commons, among others.
  • promoting the meeting and sharing of knowledge between experienced and inexperienced editors under the Música Portuguesa banner
  • create partnerships with organisations that stand out in the field of Portuguese music
  • promote Wikipedia and other sister projects as teaching tools

Photo competitions


Wiki Loves Earth in Portugal was organised by Wikimedia Portugal for the fourth time after the 2015, 2019 and 2020 editions. Prizes for the competition worth €1,000 were funded through a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation (€500 for 1st place, €300 for 2nd place, €100 for 3rd place). The photos were judged by a jury made up of José Teixeira (CIIMAR / University of Porto), Catarina Grilo (ANP/WWF), André Barbosa (Wikimedia Portugal), Gonçalo Themudo (Wikimedia Portugal), Sofia Ponte (IADE-European University), Jorge Nunes (Nature Photographer), Fátima Trindade Neves (Wikimedia Portugal), Rodrigo Cabrita (Photojournalist).

In total, 113 participants uploaded 1320 images, with the national stage being the 12th with the most images submitted compared to entries from other countries. The vast majority (79 per cent) of participants uploaded their first photo to Wikimedia Commons, Wikimedia's open multimedia repository.

The best photos from Portugal were also judged by an international jury along with the finalists from all the participating countries. The winner of the first international prize was top hat and frame photographed by Neide Paixão; four other photos made the top 20.

Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is an annual photographic competition held in the autumn and organised by members of the Wikimedia community around the world. Participants take photographs of the various monuments and historical sites in their region and upload them to Wikimedia Commons. The competition aims to raise the profile of the built heritage of the participating countries by encouraging people to record them photographically and to publish these images under a free licence, so that they can be used not only on Wikipedia, but anywhere and by anyone. A total of 4026 photos of Portugal's built, archaeological and natural heritage were uploaded by 32 participants, making it the 10th country by number of photos in the global competition.

Prizes totalling 1000 euros were awarded to the three best photos, as well as to the participant who uploaded photos of the largest number of different monuments, funded by a grant from the WIkimédia Foundation.
