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

Conducting the second contest of WLM, we were able to achieve the following goals:
  • The participants in the competition (32 in total), almost half was new, and the number of participants who participated before was also increased.
  • We also managed to increase the number of photographs of national monuments.
  • We also actively conducted advertising activities in social networks, with the help of which we were able to attract new participants.


Please report on your original project targets.
