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?
    • The actual number of photos uploaded during the contest was ~130% more than expected before.
    • We managed to include several photographers in the contest who helped with uploading a lot of photos. We had a proffessional photographer in the jury as well.
  • What did not work so well?
    • The public awareness about the contest was not high much. We think the reason for this is we started the contest a bit late and our late social activities was not enough to increase an awareness.
    • As we were heavily engaged during the contest, we started working on our report lately.
  • What would you do differently next time?
    • We will start promoting the contest earlier and we hope this will solve the problem mentioned above. Next time we will focus on more quality images as well.
    • We will start working on our report earlier.
