GoalsEdit

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 monuments in Greece were covered for first time with photos from the competition. Generally we succeeded in increasing the number of freely licensed images of Greek monuments, in raising awareness of historical heritage through the photographs uploaded during the competition, and improving the quality of the content on Wikimedia projects by providing images to existing articles. We noticed that some articles were created following the existance of images. More items were included in the Monuments list and were synchronized with Wikidata. 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.
