Wikicheese attracts cheese-lovers to Wikipedia in France

Wikicheese attracts cheese-lovers to Wikipedia in France
 
Wikimedia Commons

France has hundreds of different kinds of cheeses, and many are documented on Wikipedia, the open-source online encyclopedia. But the articles lack quality photos. Enter: WikiCheese, a project from Wikimedia France to raise money to buy equipment to take photos of French cheese. It's the group’s first crowdfunding campaign, aimed at broadening the reach of Wikipedia. For now the the focus is on cheese lovers, but in the future, Wikimedia France would like to attract more women, as they make up barely 20 percent of Wikipedia editors.
