Request fundedEdit

We are pleased that Wiki Loves Africa will be conducted in Algeria for a third year. We are approving this request for $1997.10.

Please respond on your talkpage as soon as possible to these three requests:

  1. Please provide us with the list of monuments in Algeria that you will ask photographers to focus on. Providing Wiki Loves Monuments participants with a list of target monuments is very important to getting good quality results. Please post a link to your list here on your talkpage as soon as possible.
  2. Similarly, please provide a list of images that are needed as part of Wiki Loves Africa. Since this year’s theme is People at Work, your list might focus on the most common jobs in Algeria or in the cities in which you will host events, or jobs that are underrepresented on Wikipedia, or you may use some other criteria that makes sense for your region. Again, please post a link to your list here on your talkpage as soon as possible.
  3. Please post a list of the events you plan to host below.

Project management guidance

  • Please read and follow the guidelines provided for Participating Countries for Wiki Loves Africa 2017: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Africa_2017#Guidelines_for_Participating_Countries
  • Think about how you can help photographers gain access to monuments for WLM, or important people to photograph for WLA. Will you host special events? Will you help set up meetings? Facilitate connections with professional associations?
  • Make sure that you have a system set up to keep track of photos that are submitted as part of the project.
  • Ideally, photos will not just be added to Commons. They will be incorporated into Wikipedia articles. Think about ways you can encourage volunteers to move appropriate images into Wikipedia articles. Set a goal for the number of contest images that are used in articles.
  • Note that we will be required to submit a report at the end of your project. We strongly advise you to review the sample reports now so you can see what we require for this program and plan ahead so you can be successful in writing your report.


IMPORTANT: Instructions for tracking your expenses

At the end of your project, you will be asked to provide an itemized list of all expenses for your project. This list of expenses should tally up to 100% of the grant funds you have received, and should make use of the categories previously laid out for Wiki Loves Africa participants. In addition, you will be required to submit documentation (receipts, photo-documentation, etc) along with your itemized list. We recommend that you set up a system to collect documentation as you go because, for example, receipts are much easier to get the same day of the purchase rather than days, weeks or months later. We strongly recommend that you create a folder for everyone on your team to use, and then remind people regularly to submit records of their expenses as soon as possible, rather than waiting until the end.

Below is a list of some of the requirements we have for documentation (with thanks to Florence for her input). Please read through these guidelines and plan to follow them over the course of your project:

  • If you purchase materials (for example: gifts, T-shirts, food, banners, etc), submit the following:
    • Receipts (required)
    • Photo-documentation of the materials
  • If you have expenses related to hotels and restaurants, submit the following:
    • Receipts (required)
    • The names of all beneficiaries (for example, the names of everyone sharing the meal for a restaurant receipt)
  • If you distribute cash to anyone (for example: stipends, cash prizes, etc), submit the following:
    • Print this form (or an equivalent) and document the amount of the stipend and the name of the recipient, then have the recipient write their signature confirming receipt.
  • If you purchase data, even from a phone, a receipt should be accessible. Please make a point of collecting a receipt.

Please make sure to watch this talkpage so you will see any additional updates we post here.

Thank you for your work to support the Wikimedia movement in Algeria!
