Group leader for Photos is: @Ckoerner
This is a task to collect ideas and progress from the group of volunteers who agreed to help take photos Wikimedia Hackathon 2019 in Prague and upload them to Commons.
There will be a way for participants to indicate their preference in being photographed. Attendees will be wearing green lanyards to indicate that you may approach them to take their photo. Orange colored lanyards indicate that a person does not wish to be photographed.
If someone asks to not have their photo taken, but are not wearing an identifiable lanyard, please direct them to one of the hackathon organizers, Rachel Farrand, or myself to assist with getting an appropriate lanyard.
Also, please take care in photographing participants at the event. The purpose of photographing the event is to have a report of the activities of the event. Candid photos are fine if the subject is aware they are being photographed. Please don't upload photos of people in awkward, intimate, or embarrassing situations. For example, in the middle of a yawn, having a private conversation, or eating something. Please be aware of the Commons guidelines on photographs of identifiable people.
Upload to Commons!
The category to tag your uploads to Commons with is: Category:Wikimedia_Hackathon_Prague_2019 or a subcategory if appropriate. If you haven't uploaded to Commons before, don't worry. Let me know and we can find some time together to figure it out. If you would like to join me for lunch on the first day of the hackathon, I’ll be there with my camera and laptop.
The group photo is scheduled for 13:30 on Saturday. Location TBD. It would be great to have your assistance in creating a group photo of everyone. If you are interested in helping take the photo, please leave a comment in this task! We'll look for a location sometime Friday.
Here are some suggestions for specific things to photograph that are needed for Commons and future Wikimedia/Hackathon related presentations. Think specifically about anything that a newcomer might be curious to see a visual representation of in advance of a future event. Suggestions welcome.
- Diverse groups of participants working
- Any event specific merchandise in use (example, "mentor" buff being worn by a mentor while talking with a newcomer or someone writing on the skill-share board"
