Learning edit

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?
Good quality photos were added to Commons, and the judging and award giving went smoothly
  • What did not work so well?
Preparation for the competition... We joined the competition at the last minute, and did not have time to advertise it well enough to increase participation, as well as better define most useful photo.
  • What would you do differently next time?
Next time we would make the decision on participation well in advance, and prepare for it by arranging photo walks, and well publicizing the competition.
