Please describe the project in 1–2 sentences
Layout of the Wiki Loves Monuments Philippines photobook jacket. Note that the layout will be changed to appear as a documentation of both the 2012 and 2013 editions.
The chapter has committed with government agencies which endorsed the project to provide a project documentation highlighting the best images taken during the contest period. Now that Wiki Loves Monuments in the Philippines has held two editions and may unlikely hold it in the near term, the project team deemed it necessary to already compile the output of the project.
Originally, the project team planned to produce a photobook to distribute it during the awarding ceremony, hence it included it in the Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 grant (item#3), however a simpler photo program was decided to be distributed instead to the winners. The project team thought of reserving the photobook and use it as its documentation and distribute it to the government agencies which the chapter had committed to provide them with this type of documentation hence an initial layout was already prepared.

Fit to strategy edit

How will this project support the key organizational objectives of
  • This is intended to be part of the chapter's documentation efforts in its bid to have full documentation of its projects before it submits itself for accreditation by the government sanctioned Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC).
  • As copies of this publication will be distributed to relevant government agencies, this will help the Chapter gain credibility and help it earn the endorsement of the said agencies once it undergoes accreditation.
This statement should address at least one of the strategic priorities listed here specifically. See WMF Grants Program criteria for decisionmaking.
  • Organization development
    The project team would like to establish a benchmark on how projects should at least be documented, more than completing their respective reports on Meta. Emphasize on the value of partnering with government agencies which will help it broaden its reach through their endorsements.
