We succeeded!

Thanks to you, the crowdsourcing project UNESCO: Put a World of Pictures into Words is now completed. It started the 18th February 2019 and ended in the beginning of August, 2020. In total, 5050 photographs were processed. The Volunteers from various countries around the world, transcribed the captions and meticulously described each picture. The valuable metadata captured through the project will help to promote the archival collection and greatly facilitate the ability of researchers to discover and search the photographic collection. Important information such as programme, city, and theme may be used to search through the photos. This exciting milestone would not have been possible without the work of the 258 participants.  

Thank you for your help!
