Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?
Wiki Loves Earth aims to encourage the enhancement of protected natural areas through Wikimedia projects (mainly the Wikipedia encyclopedia and Wikimedia Commons library of multimedia). The Goal of the Wiki Loves Earth contest is to encourage everyone to participate in the presentation of the natural heritage. by photographs of these natural areas and share them under a free license (CC - by - sa) to allow its free sharing and exploitation.
We targeted 3 goals:
- Add or improve content
- Recruit new editors
- Engage existing editors
- We have been better than the last two years
- we collected photos of better quality
- we exceeded the 1000 photos with more new participants
Please report on your original project targets.

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?
- Advertising campaign in social media, travel and meetings and workshops and competition presentation sessions - We are happy with our first experience of our partnership with Algeria Markets which facilitated us with its distribution network. to send the gifts to the winners (by vouchers).
- What did not work so well?
- We canceled the 2 photo expeditions planned by the grant program because we received the funds very late during the month of the contest.
- What would you do differently next time?
launch the campaign for the contest earlier. to form a group dedicated to the preparation of the competition.
