Time inputs were reported for about 20% of contests. The average number of staff hours spent on running a Wiki Loves Monuments contest in 2013 and 2014 was 50, while the average for volunteer hours was 200.
We obtained data on number of staff hours used in organizing Wiki Loves Monuments contests for 15 program implementations (21%) and volunteer hours input for 18 program implementations (25%). Staff hours input ranged from 0 to 240, with an average of 50 , while volunteer hours input ranged from 0 to 945, with an average of 200. (2013 , 2014)
The majority of Wiki Loves Monuments implementations relied on donated resources, most commonly, meeting space and materials or equipment.
Most of the 26 Wiki Loves Monuments contests who reported data on donated resources used them in some form (85%). As the graph below shows, more than half of the program implementations reported using donated meeting space and donated materials or equipment (54%). Nearly half (46%) reported using donated prizes/giveaways and 15% used food donations.
