Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
A panel discussion about local photo events such as Wikipedia takes the City and Photo Walks. Four or Five panel members who organized successful photo events throughout the world using different concepts will share their experiences and lessons on what works and doesn't work. Some previously defined themes will be covered (questions will be appreciated on this page) and questions from the audience will be possible too.

The panel is combined with a presentation by Deror Avi on the Elef Milim Project and by Benoit Rochon on Wikipedia Takes Montreal.
