Good and Bad Sides of the Event edit

Good sides edit

  • Coordination and collaboration: The project has collaborated with BCN and Nepalese in Photography- A Group of Professional Photographers in Nepal.
  • Participation of professional photographers: The event attracted a good number of professional photographers to participate in it. So this project has formed an enthusiastic team of photographers who are willing to contribute to Wikimedia Commons.

Bad sides edit

  • Weather condition: This time unexpected weather condition affected our plan on Photowalks and Photorides.
  • Less Participation from Community: On 16 April 2023 I put a proposal on Nepali Wikipedia Vilagepump regarding call for participation in this event[1] but only few among nepali wikipedian showed interest on it.
