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?

I bought the camera with a discount of 2,000 rubles.

  • What did not work so well?

I created a template {{UG BAK Camera grant}} and category Photos taken with UG BAK camera in COMMONS. Uploaded photos almost completely are used in the articles. We're going to use the camera for the contest Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Earth, taking pictures of our meetings and conferences. Our photos have geographic coordinates.

It has already taken some pictures for Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki-Ural seminar in Izhevsk and Wikiconference in Saint-Petersburg.
