This week, Wikimedia Sverige announced an important ongoing partnership with international media group, Bonnier, releasing freely-licensed photographs to Wikimedia Commons. The media group has released 27 photographs of notable Swedish authors to Wikimedia Commons under CC-BY-SA 3.0 license and plans to continue releasing photographs in the future. Authors included in the first release include: Inger Alfvén, Karin Johannisson and Martin Widmark.

This partnership was the result of important educational outreach and relationship building conducted by representatives of Wikimedia Sverige. The relationship was sparked by Bonnier’s curiosity about how to edit Wikipedia and interest in understanding how free licensing works on Wikimedia Commons. The partnership with Bonnier is just one example of the important educational outreach work Wikimedia Sverige has conducted. This September, for the third year, the chapter will conduct outreach activities at the Gothenburg Book Fair, the largest in Scandinavia.

Congratulations to Wikimedia Sverige!
