This is the first time that embassies have supported a competition in Wikipedia. The original idea of the competition came from Mr Ulf Larsen, who works in Norway and lives in Estonia.
Over the course of the competition, 216 new articles on Estonia were written in Bokmål and 202 new articles were written in Nynorsk. Forty users of the Estonian Wikipedia managed to write or edit 768 articles in one month. 623 of those articles were written from scratch during this competition. This great number was very surprising for the jury.
Most articles written in the Estonian language concern the geography and history of Norway. There was also interest in Norwegian literature, art and cinema.
