This report for a Rapid Grant approved in FY 2016-17 has been reviewed and accepted by the Wikimedia Foundation.


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

We met all our set goals except where we indicated that 500 Images will be uploaded but only 476 were eventually uploaded .


Please report on your original project targets.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
If at least 25 people participates Exceeded
If three months after the contest, 75 (and 15%) of uploaded images are used on wiki projects Still in progress The report period not yet elapsed
If at least 500 images are uploaded to Wikimedia Common 476 images Not exceeded
If at least 13 monuments are photographed Over 13 Monuments were photographed Originally , we focused on the 13 national monuments from the south west, however due to the wider publicity of the event. Photographers from other regions such as east and North of the country actively participated. Therefore, we were able to have a more countrywide photograph of our monuments.

Application for the fund came too late, therefore fund came mid way to the project life span.
