Noteworthy Wikimedian Recognition

The Recognition

Wikimedia projects have been active in India for a few years and the journey has been exciting (Wikimedia Chapter First Annual report, Gautam John's article and Wikimedia Foundation article). This has been made possible by the contributions of hundreds of Wikimedians across various Wikimedia projects. WikiConference India 2011 is the first conference and largest congregation of Wikimedians in India across Wikimedia projects. The Wikimedia India chapter Executive committee believes it would be befitting to use this opportunity to recognize noteworthy contributions of some of the best contributors to our projects.

The objective of this recognition is to appreciate Wikimedians (contributing to India focused projects) from across Wikimedia projects and languages for their contributions.

The nomination process

  • Any Wikimedian can nominate any other wikimedian of their choice for the recognition (preferred). Self nominations are also allowed.
  • Nominees for the Recognition should have made significant contributions to Wikimedia India projects or the movement.
  • Contributions include content, Outreach and contributions in any other form.
  • Nominations should be through a filled Nomination form on the Wikimedia India wiki.
  • Incomplete nominations will not be considered.
  • The jury's decision would be final.

Eligibility Criterion

Any wikimedian other than current Members of the Wikimedia India Executive committee, members of the Jury, Wiki Conference India Office bearers, staff/contractors of the Wikimedia foundation or anyone paid directly for their time/effort by Wikimedia organisations are eligible for these recognitions.

(for contributions till 2010)!
