Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

Since my last rapid grant, this contest exceeded all expectations and although it did not receive the desired number of participants, I am happy with the results.


Please report on your original project targets. Please be sure to review and provide metrics required for Rapid Grants.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
50 new or improved articles (25 for each project) 302 articles (197 for eswikinews, 105 for eswikivoyage) Reached and exceeded.
20 participants (10 for each project) 14 participants (8 for eswikivoyage, 7 for eswikinews) Unlike the previous contest, thanks to the organization and diffusion this number was reached.


Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?

CentralNotice on spanish projects was what allowed the increase of new articles and participants

  • What did not work so well?

Unexpectedly, the increase in news to review exceeded the planned workload, the absence of reviewers prevented a timely review. There were some loopholes exploited by contestants to take advantage. Although it was not punished by the judges, it caused discomfort among the other participants, as well as the volunteers of both projects.

  • What would you do differently next time?

The eswikinews reviewers have shown their willingness to support future contests and will be contacted for an effective organization. Likewise, we will improve the rules, that way there will be no loopholes that contestants can take advantage of.
