Project Goal edit

Choose one or more of the following goals. You can add or delete goals as needed.

Briefly, this budget request if approved will be used to produce merchandises, prizes, and promotional materials for Wiki Loves Monuments 2019. The goals of these contests and activities are to add high quality content, recruit new editors, strengthen the community and recruit potential members into our chapter. The duration of this project is three months, which is intentionally extended to cover the judging and postage period.

Project Plan edit

Like previous years, most of the activities are online. For photo and article contests, tasks of the organizers include setting up and monitoring the meta page, advertisement, communication with juries and winners, production of awards and promotional materials, packing and postage.

Activities edit

Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?

The contest is focused on, but not limited to, the photographs of Thailand's national and cultural heritage. We believe that by digitisation we are able to preserve these items. It is also very important for our community since this contest is hosted on an annual basis.

2. How will you let people know about the contest?

Community will be notified about our contest by our existing communication channels including meta page, local Wikipedia, social media, and mailing list. Our local sponsors will also help advertise the contest.

3. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

Images will be judged by a panel of juries consisting of a representative from our chapter and two professional photographers.

4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?

Organisers will encourage Wikipedia Asian Month participants (in October) to use the images submitted to write new articles or to incorporate them into existing articles.

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?
