Project PlanEdit


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?

This contest will focus on adding some photos available in Wikimedia commons to articles that needs to be improved/ without images. This contest will aid the community volunteers to learn about the wikimedia commons, licensing, copyright and how pictures can be re-used after uploading them.

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

Our Facebook group and a Telegram channel will be used to spread the news abut the contest.

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

We will judge by one photo per article, the more the photos placed on articles the greater the chance of getting the price.

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

Stub articles are mostly the ones that lack photos, therefore stub article category or instance the culture, will be selected and pictures will be sorted up in the commons section and placed on matching articles.
