The winner of the photo bag of the Internet shop Meinefototasche.de is determined: The graduate photo-film designer Ela Mergels from Cologne won with her motif “Mila” the production of their own, individual photo bag. Picture Shuttle and Meinefototasche.de had called for their favorite motif to be sent to Picture Shuttle until May 31 under the keyword “create your bag”. Now we congratulate and wish Ela Mergels a lot of fun with the new accessory!
The first picture contest of the German-speaking Wikipedia takes place in July 2006. After the success of the 4th writing contest the idea came up to make a similar competition for illustrations of the Wikipedia. It is not primarily about making beautiful “glossy pictures”, but making good illustrations for the encyclopedia. It is important to ensure a high quality of the submitted images, but there is no criterion as a minimum condition.
Illustrations can be nominated for the following categories: people, nature, technology, architecture, graphics and, last but not least, image editing. Submit the contributions until 31 July 2006.
