Project status[edit]

Did you comply with the requirements specified by WMF in the grant agreement?
Is your project completed?
YES (We will keep using the equipment to work on similar projects in the future.)

Activities and lessons learned[edit]


The equipment was used by various community members over the course of the last 8 months.

Lessons learned[edit]

What worked well?
The project worked according to the plan. We photographed some villages of Patiala district and also we were able to get pictures of around 15 famous personalities whose pictures were either not available or were not of good quality.

We also used the camera to document some dialects and languages. We also recorded some Punjabi folksongs as a pilot project.

What didn't work?
We think the project went pretty and we have delivered a little more than the expectations. We will keep working on documenting villages of Punjab and taking photographs of prominent personalities.
What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
We might organize a photography workshop for Wikimedians so that more Good Quality images can be taken. We would also like to get some micro grants for travelling in the region to continue doing this work in the future.

We would also like to request for another camera in the future, so that different community members can use the equipment at the same time.
