Requests for non-financial assistance


This section is optional. It may be used to highlight the potential grantee's potential for successfully executing this project.

Consider including the following information:

  • List of team members (names or usernames):
  • Onwiki evidence of community support (such as a project about this discussion):
  • Endorsements from community members or movement groups:
  • Special skills or qualifications this potential grantee or project lead brings to this project:

Official site of WLM in Spain (English version).


In the sections below, please describe how the project is related to the Wikimedia mission and Wikimedia's strategic priorities.

Fit to strategy[edit]

How will this project support the key organizational objectives of
  • increasing reach (more people will access or contribute to Wikipedia or our other projects),
  • participation (more people actually contributing),
  • quality (more content, more useful content, or higher-quality content),
  • credibility (more trust in our projects),
  • organizational maturity and effectiveness (how it will move you or the Wikimedia community forward),
  • or financial sustainability (how it will help you achieve more in the long run)?
This statement should address at least one of the strategic priorities listed here specifically. See WMF Grants Program criteria for decisionmaking.
It is well known that through WLM a lot of material for Commons is gathered, Wikimedia has an important promotion in the press and we gain a lot of new editors (although unfortunately it is also proven that not many stay for long, i.e. the retainment quote is low).
In the current consolidation phase of Wikimedia Spain it is crucial to ensure activities like this one that have been carried out in the last years, and if succeeded in, then think of additional topics.


If the project will benefit a specific online community, please tell us.
All projects in the foundation dealing with monuments located in Spain

Please provide a brief statement about how the project is related to other work in the Wikimedia movement. For example, does the project fit into a work area such as GLAM, education, organizational development, editor retention, or outreach?
Local organisation of the contest Wiki Loves Monuments that is carried out in approx. 42 countries this year

If successful, will the project have the potential to be replicated successfully by other individuals, groups, or organizations? Please explain how in 1–2 sentences.
We of course plan to organise the contest in 2014, as well, with improved directories and hopefully year by year more people interested in this activity. Since it is an official contest within Wikimedia it shall be organised only by chapters, user groups or thematic organisations.

Please list other benefits to the movement here.
Guiness record;
if the results from the pictures of Spain (6 among the top 20, including the 2nd) are as good as last year, the impact in the press about Wikimedia will be important (see coverage through the press in 2011 and in 2012)
