Grants:Project/Rapid/Project/Rapid/PH-WC/Wiki Loves Earth 2020 in the Philippines/Report
Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?
The 3rd edition of Wiki Loves Earth in the Philippines was conducted to promote the natural heritage sites of the Philippines. Due to the global pandemic, no photo walk was conducted this year.
Please report on your original project targets.
|Target outcome||Achieved outcome||Explanation|
|Number of participants: 100||254||Met the target beating the previos 2 editions. Holding the contest 3 years in a row has created following.|
|Number of photos uploaded on Wikimedia Commons: 1000||989||See commons:Category:Images from Wiki Loves Earth 2020 in the Philippines. Short of 11 photos but within the target. Offline outreach activities would have boosted this figure.|
|Number of photos used on Wikimedia projects: 100||65||No offline outreach activity was organize this year. WPWP would have also helped if the activities were conducted.|
Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:
- What worked well?
Social media promotion made it possible to still reach the target despite of pandemic and lack of outreach activities. I see it as a convenient way to promote the contest aside from the banner. Having fb page is also an advantage.
- What would you do differently next time?
If possible, offline activities like photo walks should be conducted next year to engage photographers and interested contributors.
