The competition organised by Polish embassy in Vilnius and portal DELFI for the best entries about Poland in Lithuanian Wikipedia has been settled!

The first places in the contest were taken by Katarzyna Kuckiewicz (anniversary category) and Simonas Saarmann (general category), the second places were taken by Violetta Tymul (anniversary category) and Katarzyna Kuckiewicz (general category), and the third places were taken by Tadeusz Fedorowicz (anniversary category ) and Ryszard Sylobrytow (general category).

We heartily congratulate the winners and express our gratitude for their great engagement into the contest and an impressive number of entries!

The contest was divided into two categories. The first one concerned 3 important and festive anniversaries which were celebrated in Poland from 2014 to 2015, namely 25th anniversary of independence, 15th anniversary of joining NATO and 10th anniversary of joining the EU. The second category – general one – for the best article, or the biggest number of articles connected with Poland published on the Lithuanian website of Wikipedia. The participants’ task was to create, complete or translate into Lithuanian the articles connected with Poland. The topics for the contest had to be directly connected with Poland, e.g. they had to concern famous Poles, Polish culture, science, tradition, history etc.

The goal of the contest was successfully achieved – the participants published 234 new entries. The articles written by the participants mainly concerned Polish personages, important Polish institutions (universities, museums and others), Polish contribution in the international organisations and initiatives.

The winners of both categories won double trips to the chosen Polish city, for the second place they won tablets, while for the third place they were awarded with books, CDs and gadgets prepared by the embassy.
