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?
  • What did not work so well?
  • What would you do differently next time?

What worked well was the number of people who participated and the number of pictures uploaded on commons. What did not worked so well was the time that we had to organize everything, since we decided last minute to participate, we did almost everything in a week. Probably with more time in advance we could promote it better and send the budge on time. What we will do next year differently will be the organization stuff start at least one month in advance and organize some meeting or write some blog posts in Albania about CC licensing because this year we had a lot of photographers who didn't agree to upload the pictures CC so they were non-qualified or they didn't agree to participate at all, because the lack of knowledge on CC licencing.
