Thanks for this announcement, Nikola.

My compliments to the Wikimedians of Bulgaria on this innovative challenge.

You caught my interest with the invitation to time travel, but you hooked
me with the beautiful photographs.

What a generous gift from the Bulgarian Archives. What a benefit to the
Wikimedia Projects.

> Dear CEE-ers,
> The Archives Challenge is an international edit-a-thon, aimed at promoting
> the already more than 5300 digitised images from the Bulgarian State
> Archives[1]. It starts on November 15th, and lasts for a month. We have
> developed a scoring system and invite you to give us feedback on it before
> the challenge begins. For those very active Wikipedians around the globe,
> who create descriptions of the images in different languages, add
> categories to the images, use them in existing articles and write new
> articles based on them, there will be barnstars, and perhaps some small
> souvenirs.
> Among the images you will find actresses and actors from the beginning of
> the 20th century, historical figures and buildings – it is like heaven for
> dreamers, who want to time-travel. Please join, and help us make the best
> of our collaboration with the Bulgarian Archives State Agency!
> Best regards,
