@MarcoAurelio It's just on commons. Where can I ask to be added to that group?
I'm just trying to send emails to users. I go to user's page and click on "Email this user" option to send them an email.

It's hard to tell without really having an example of a layout but I think a handful of thumbnails from Instagram in a gallery form should work.

Yes, now it works. Thanks.
I cannot see the list of people who signed. The manage button is still inactive for me.

Can we make it retroactive? as in the permission applies to all photos submitted up to the time of signing? That way we won't need to ask permission for photos from previous years if the photographer is the same.

At Wiki Loves Monuments we can really benefit from having this URL shortner. We'v had a lot of trouble with photos whose link has non-standard English characters in them. This would make out lives much easier.

@LilyOfTheWest What is the status with UNESCO and Flickr? I directly messaged united4heritage on Instagram. They saw my message but didn't reply.

Just heard back from Ebad. I'm following up with Arabic Wikipedia. Please you follow up with Flickr and UNESCO.
@LilyOfTheWest I sent an email to Ebad yesterday but haven't heard back yet. Any news from Flickr and UNESCO?

Do we have a lead on Arabic Wikipedia? and UNESCO?

We can ask them to share, repost and retweet their favorite photo. It solves the permission issue and also makes it easy for us to find how many people have re-post/shared/retweeted the photo.
We should start approaching UNESCO directly. We are a week away and coordination takes time. Can you please find the people who handle social media at UNESCO and United4Heritage?
Bear in mind that the audience you get next week may not be ready for immediate action, i.e., they land on the blog to see the results not to be shown a way to get engaged. So the best way is probably to drop a hint that there are ways to help and just try to engage their interest. I like the idea of asking people to help in adding the photos to Wikipedia but there needs to be clear and easy-to-follow instructions on the blog. Perhaps, you can write a separate blog post on "what next?" where you'll explain what will happen till next year's competition. There you can say there are two major activities: organizing next year's competition and adding this year's photos to Wikipedia and explain how people can get engaged in each of these activities. Then in the blog post next week you can include a link to that post.
