Grant Proposal[edit]

M. Please state the title of your proposal. This will also be the Meta-Wiki page title.

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2022 - Telugu Wikipedia

Q. Indicate if it is a local, international, or regional proposal and if it involves several countries? (optional)


Q2. If you have answered regional or international, please write the country names and any other information that is useful for understanding your proposal.

R. If you would like, please share any websites or social media accounts that your group or organization has.

1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

The project is intended to improve the articles on Telugu Wikipedia with relevant images. The Project is paramount to facilitating active user participation and adding images to articles.

There are more than 4000 article pages with no images, the project goal is to upload images on at-least 1500 pages.

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.

A project page is created on Telugu Wikipedia to convey the relevant information to users of the community and the participants can register by signing in on the project page. Any information relevant to the project will be communicated to all the users through the Village pump and user talk pages.

We have identified 4000 article pages with no images and will be encouraging users to add images in newly created articles.

3. What are the activities you will be developing and delivering as part of these approaches or strategies?

Regular training sessions and strategy discussion meetings will be conducted for strengthening the project. Although the international competition is intended for users with 1 year of edit experience on Wikipedia, we at Telugu Wikipedia are considering new user contributions to the project (these users are awarded only certificates and Souvenirs). Will be conducting outreach through various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram for sharing the project details.

An innovative approach to improving content: Telugu Wikipedia has more than twenty thousand geographical articles, although maps are being added to these pages, images can bring more beauty and in turn create active community participation while reaching out to a huge audience through these articles can be done. So, we have planned for "Photo Travel" (travel to the nearest geographical locations to capture images to upload in wiki commons and add to Wikipedia). The Idea of Photo travel is to facilitate some of the users to capture images of geographical places like government infra, and tourist attractions to upload on wiki commons under usable licenses and use in relevant Wikipedia pages. example: the following image of a primary health center at a village in kerameri village of Asifabad block in Telangana state is used in the relevant article on Telugu Wikipedia link to the image- [1] link to the article-[2]

4. Are your activities part of a Wikimedia movement campaign or event? If so, please select the relevant campaign below. If so, please select all the relevant campaigns from the list below. If "other", please state which.
