Queen Silvia Nursing Award[edit]

Dear Editors,

I have been referred to this forum as I would need help in verifying my sources which as in Swedish. I am currently trying to publish an article on Queen Silvia Nursing Award but it had been rejected 3 times due to the content, references and notability issues. I have since made the necessarily improvements but I hope to receive some feedback on it so I could work towards creating a useful article for the audience. Here is the link:

Thank you so much in advance!

Jean Sibelius[edit]

You might find it a little unorthodox for me to be addressing Jean Sibelius here as he was of course a Swedish-speaking Finn (even if he learnt Finnish later). As there are undoubtedly Swedish-speaking Finns involved in this WikiProject, I would like to announce that we are trying to improve the Sibelius article up to at least GA, if not FA standard by the time of his 150th anniversary on 8 December 2015. One of the major problems is the acceptability of the images - most have serious copyright problems (see the talk page). There are certainly lots of good photographs published in Finnish/Swedish encylopedias from around 1900 as well as in early biographies, in the press and in concert programmes. Sibelius also performed/conducted in Stockholm. Please upload these on Commons with the necessary source details. Any additional help with the Sibelius article would be greatly appreciated. Further discussion on the Jean Sibelius talk page please.--Ipigott (talk) 19:34, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Thousands of Swedish cityscape and other images may be deleted from Commons[edit]

Please see discussion at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(miscellaneous)#Two_weeks_to_save_freedom_of_panorama_in_Europe. I think it is an item of major interest to the editors interested in this WikiProject. The (very underestimated) counts for how many images may be affected have been posted to commons:Commons_talk:Freedom_of_Panorama_2015#numbers. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 01:10, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
