Grants:Project/Rapid/UG GR/Wiki Loves Earth in Greece 2018/Report
Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went? All of the project's goals were exceeded. This also includes improving the quality of the already existing articles related to the pictures. Also many Nature Protected Areas of Greece were covered for first time with photos from the competition. Generally we succeeded in increasing the number of freely licensed images of Greek nature, in raising awareness of natural heritage through the photographs uploaded during the competition, and improving the quality of the content on Wikimedia projects by providing images to existing articles. One of the finalists got the 15th place in the international WLE. We also succeeded in raising awareness of free licences among photographers in Greece (at least for those who participated) and recruited some of them as new contributors to Wikimedia Commons. We also increased local media coverage about Wikimedia projects through national news outlets. From the organizational side, the project run smoothly based on last years experience and more people on board.
