Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

We atteined our goal as good as possible this year, with the political events in Algeria during the contest we estimate that is accepted in 3 Goals :

  1. Add content (Photo, Video),
  2. Recruiting new editors,
  3. Increasing skills for existing editors.

Wiki Loves Africa 2017 Algeria 289 14 (4%) 41 31 (75%)

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
Number of participants +50 Total of Participants 41 include 31 (75%) of new users A point that could be taken into consideration is that are potential participants --- Algerians photographers --- was occupated by the last political events in Algeria.
Number of photos uploaded to Wikimedia Commons +400 Pictures recieved 289 We think the low participation comes from two points
  1. The late launch of the campaign because we did not receive the funds in time to Start finance the FB campaign and others
  2. The banner that appears in Wikipedia's projects was not very understood to visitors.
Number of photos used on Wikimedia projects 40 pic 13 Like the other competitions, we did not organize any editing workshops.

We are confident that these photos will help improve the quality of Algerian items on an ongoing basis over time.
