Additional comments from WMFEdit

Hello Fawaz.tairou, I wanted to follow up on my colleagues comments and ask a few follow up questions.

  1. I see in your impact section you have two "For Photo Contest" sections. Does this mean your number of participants are 50 in total?
  2. We consider t-shirts to be a high cost item and therefore recommend giving them as a prize as opposed to an item everyone who participates gets as part of the contest. In your summary I see that you agree with this as well but still have the number of shirts at 20. Is it possible to reduce that to 5?
  3. The number of Stickers & badges also seem high for the number of participants you're planning to have. Could you reduce that to 50 as well?
  4. Lastly, if you look at our Guidelines and Criteria section on our grant program you will see that we don't allow for cash prizes for contests. Would you be able to provide gift cards, vouchers or gift certificates only for your prizes?

Please let me know if the answers to these questions and I can proceed accordingly. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 17:35, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
