Hey Guys,

Wikimedia Commons- The Mumbai chapter is looking for images of Mumbai and various parts of the city. There is no specific area to be covered hence any image which is photographed in the city from a church to a railway station to a street to a market to a beach is welcomed.

The aim is to take photographs of as many local sights and city specific objects of cultural heritage as possible for Wikipedia articles. This is aimed at illustrating Wikipedia articles and increasing the media content Wikimedia Commons, thereby nourishing Wikipedia, contributing to open and free knowledge sharing and promote awareness about Wikipedia in the city.

Since Wikipedia is a free source there is no monetary composition but the photographer will be give due credits.

About Wikimedia
Wikimedia Commons is a media file repository making available public domain and freely-licensed educational media content (images, sound and video clips) to everyone, in their own language. It acts as a common repository for the various projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, but you do not need to belong to one of those projects to use media hosted here. The repository is created and maintained not by paid archivists, but by volunteers. The scope of Commons is set out on the project scope pages.

Wikimedia Commons uses the same wiki-technology as Wikipedia and everyone can edit it. Unlike media files uploaded to other projects, files uploaded to Wikimedia Commons can be embedded on pages of all Wikimedia projects without the need to separately upload them there.

Launched on 7 September 2004, Wikimedia Commons hit the 1,000,000 uploaded media file milestone on 30 November 2006 and currently contains 12,159,840 files and 104,906 media collections.
