Suggestions for local prizesEdit

Finalists from each country will be submitted to the global WLE event, where they would compete with other finalists for global prizes. We also have the option of awarding the top ten finalists from Sri Lanka as well. I suggest certificates for the top 25 entries, but I am not sure about the best prizes for top 10. Any suggestions? Rehman 06:20, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

How about this an order like this, but it all depends on the budget:
  • Top 30 Entries - Participation Certificate
  • Top 10 Entries - WLE Sri Lanka Tshirts
  • Top 3 Entries - Cash Prizes (1st place LKR 40,000, 2nd Place LKR 25,000, 3rd Place LKR 15,000), and winning certificates
  • Top 1 Entry - Full-board overnight stay at a scenic hotel

Thanks for the feedback, Azeez. I responded to you separately, but summarising here again for transparency. As per the grant request (link above), we had to change the price structure. The final arrangement, as per the grant team's recommendations, is included in the grants page. Rehman 10:56, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

International roundEdit

Hello everyone. As discussed on email, one of the WLE-LK participants have made it to the international round! Can we work on getting a good Sinhala and Tamil translation of the below caption by tomorrow latest?

  • English: Mother Toque macaque (Macaca Sinica) with her child foraging on the hard ground at Katagamuwa Sanctuary in Sri Lanka. Nature always belongs to those who nurture, care and protect it. But the humans have forcefully claimed it theirs and are on a path of destruction: destroying jungles, waterways and evicting the rightful owners, the wild animals. The Toque macaque (Macaca Sinica) loves to traverse on trees and to be as one with nature. But this click depicts their current plight. It was heartbreaking to see the mother with her child foraging on the hard ground at Katagamuwa Sanctuary.
  • Sinhala: රිළා මවක් (මැකාකා සිනිකා) සිය දරුවා සමඟ ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ කටගමුව අභය භූමියේ දුෂ්කර භූමියේ සැරිසරයි. සොබාදහමේ අයිතිය ඇත්තේ එය පෝෂණය කරන, රැකබලා ගන්නා සහ ආරක්ෂා කරන අයටයි. නමුත් මිනිසුන් එය තමන්ට පමණක් බලහත්කාරයෙන් අයිති කරගෙන වනාන්තර, ජල මාර්ග විනාශ කරමින් සහ එහි සැබෑ අයිතිකරුවන් වන වනසතුන් ඉවත් කරමින් විනාශයේ මාවතක ගමන් කරමින් සිටිති. රිළවුන් (මැකාකා සිනිකා) ගස් මත ගමන් කිරීමට සහ සොබාදහම සමඟ එක් වීමට ඉතා ප්‍රියකරති. එනමුත් මෙම ඡායාරූපය ඔවුන්ගේ වර්තමාන තත්වය නිරූපණය කරයි. කටගමුව අභය භූමියේ දුෂ්කර බිමක මව තම දරුවා සමඟ ඉදිරියට යන ආකාරය දැකීම හද කම්පා කරවන්නක් විය.
  • Tamil: இலங்கையிலுள்ள கட்டகமுவ சரணாலயத்தில் கடினநிலத்தில் தனது குட்டியுடன் உணவு தேடும் செங்குரங்கு. இயற்கையானது அதனைப் பாதுகாப்போருக்கும் வளப்படுத்துவோருக்கும் உரியது. ஆனால் மனிதர்கள் இயற்கையைத் தமதாக ஆக்கிக்கொண்டு அதனை அழிவுப்பாதையில் இட்டுச்செல்கின்றனர். காடுகளையும் நீர்வழிகளையும் அழித்து இயற்கையின் உண்மையான உரிமையாளர்களான காட்டு விலங்குகளை அவற்றின் வாழிடங்களிலிருந்து விரட்டுகின்றனர். இயற்கையோடு இணைந்து வாழும் செங்குரங்கு, மரங்களில் தாவித்திரிந்து வாழும் பழக்கமுடையது. ஆனால் அது தனது குட்டியுடன் கடினமான நிலப்பகுதியில் உணவு தேடும் இந்தப்படம், அதன் தற்போதைய கவலைக்கிடமான நிலையைக் காட்டுகிறது.
