Project scope[edit]

As a young chapter, Wikimedia Ukraine needs support for providing its activity. As it is mentioned in a report for our previous grant, uk-language Wikipedia had a remarkable gain of Page Views, a growth curve of contributors, but in the same time the amount of active wikipedians in uk-language Wikipedia is not as large as it is desirable. This expects more and more promoting actions and projects from us nearest time, such as wikiexpeditions, workshops, wikiconference, distributing promotional papers..

Project goal[edit]

The goals of this project are

  • to popularize Wikimedia projects in Ukraine
  • to involve GLAMs, science and ethnographer associations to Wikimedia movement

Non-financial requirements[edit]


Fit to strategy[edit]

Office and travel supplies are aimed to maintain and improve functioning Wikimedia Ukraine and coordinating of its members. This corresponds with such priority as stabilization Wikimedia’s infrastructure.

Publications of promotional materials are aimed to outreach more and more persons and organizations, involve them to Wikimedia movement, increase participation in Wikimedia projects.

Wikiexpeditions are expected to give us thousands of photos and a lot of interesting information about history and ethnography of our regions. This materials being uploaded to Wikimedia projects (incl. Commons) will improve quality of WM projects. Wikiexpeditions also allow us to outreach local authorities, and those who are exploring the local history, geography, ethnology etc.

Also we regard regular wiki-expeditions as innovative step in gathering free knowledge which correspond with such priority as encouraging innovation.

Other benefits[edit]

We believe, our actions may also persuade content owners to free up their material and therefore we could enrich the value of Wikimedia Foundation projects.

Measures of success[edit]

  • Measures for Wikiexpeditions:
    • number of illustrations uploaded to Wikicommons (per expedition, total)
    • number of towns/villages/places documented (total)
    • number of articles improved with materials from Wikiexpeditions
  • Measures for the camera:
    • number of illustrations made with the camera and uploaded to Wikicommons (per year)
  • Measures for Wiki Loves Monuments:
    • number of participants
    • number of illustrations uploaded to Wikicommons
    • number of publications in press.
  • Measures for Staff dealing with digitalizing voluminous publications
    • scope of the digitalized free materials
    • number of pages created/improved with such materials

We will consider this project as successful if we achieve further growth of active users, enrichment of our projects with a remarkable number of significant materials.
