Part 2: Learning[edit]

4. In your application, you outlined some learning questions. What did you learn from these learning questions when you implemented your project? How do you hope to use this learnings in the future? You can recall these learning questions below. (required)

You can recall these learning questions below: Since this contest will be held in Uzbekistan for a first time, we're planning to identify underrepresented topics regarding cultural heritage to cover these gaps in the next year by offering special nominations.

After this year we can clearly see that most of objects photographed for the competition are located in the cities. So in 2024 we're thinking about creating special nomination on rural areas.

5. Did anything unexpected or surprising happen when implementing your activities? This can include both positive and negative situations. What did you learn from those experiences? (required)

In 2023 both in WLE and WLM we've got a lot of photographs, but overall quality of content was lacking. In 2024 we're looking forward to organizing photographic workshops in Uzbekistan to train wikimedians to make photographs at least descent quality.

6. What is your plan to share your project learnings and results with other community members? If you have already done it, describe how. (required)

This competition was widely discussed in Uzbek Wikipedia telegram chat and also got some traction in Central Asian Wikimedia groups and even in-between Russian Wikimedians.
