Le Faucon opera by Bortniansky[edit]
A. Bondarenko and H. Hansbourg with the book

"Le Faucon" opera by Dmitry Bortniansky, mentioned in previous report was published on March 28, 2012. It was presented in several musical institutes of Ukraine, among them Kharkiv University of Arts and Lviv National Music Academy. This book is regarded as the first publication of translated into Ukrainian opera in Ukraine as well as a good confirmation of Wikimedia movement's ability to manage important cultural projects even those that the government could not. The translation into Ukraine was performed by the prominent Ukrainian translator and scientist M. Strikha and has been released under free license. Thus the "Le Faucon" also is regarded as the first free-licensed publication in Ukraine.

This publication arose a significant interest of Ukrainian musicians. It is important to mention at least two concert performances of this opera during 2013 year. On February 17 the Ukrainian-translated "Le Faucon" was premiered in Drohobych state theater[4], and on June 11 it was performed in Hrinchenko University in Kyiv[5]. Both premieres achieved a great success and inspired us to go on with the revival of Ukrainian-translated vocal classical music.

Permission from the Institute of History of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine
Permissions to Publish the Materials under Free licenses[edit]
  • One of the major achievements of the year on the national level is obtaining permission for the use of materials of the Institute of History of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine under the free license Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike. It would allow to improve at least a few hundreds Wikipedia articles.
Grant camera[edit]

Grant camera with accessories was purchased.

  • List of equipment: Nikon D5100 kit camera, 3 lenses (Nikkor 18-55 VR, NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX, NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4 -5.6 IF-ED AF-S DX VR), protective filters, flash, tripod, charger, batteries, bag and lens cleaning pen.

  • Used by 6 wikimedians to cover events in 5 different cities / towns
  • Over 3,000 photos taken with the camera have been uploaded to the Commons

Lessons learned[edit]

What lessons were learned that may help others succeed in similar projects? Consider the following questions and respond with 1–2 paragraphs.
What went well?
Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 Ukraine was a success, cycling wikiexpeditions were discussed and approved as a form of wikiexpeditions, three more article contests were held and more are still expected, international collaboration is developing (weeks mostly), new partners were found. We have published three books during this period. WEP is developing, but it needs even more time and efforts. The buying of Grant Camera was a success too, as it allowed to picture events and notable people (1, 2 etc), press coverage was more than satisfactory.
What did not go well?
Wikiconference could have been planned better, with more people attending; wikiexpeditions were not planned regularly.
What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
There are a lot of things we would do differently now:
  1. Ask for reallocation as soon as there are changes big enough, it is not recommended to wait until the last moment;
  2. A short report (in English preferably) is to be submitted by a person whose expenses were reimbursed or who is responsible for something (including links to commons categories, publications, videos, other materials);
  3. 15 months are too much to cover in a single report, there should be some interim reports here (!). A great idea would be to publish monthly activity reports;
  4. A person responsible is to be responsible for the project to be done, but it doesn't mean that (s)he can use the money as they please, these things are to be discussed beforehand;
  5. A conflict of Interest is to be avoided, we had a very unpleasant situation, when the Organizational Committee awarded some of its own members with bonus payments. This situation was discovered and brought to light by the Auditing Committee, and the ways how to deal with the situation at hand were presented. The OC had no authority to do so, but the WLM contest was a real success, thus the General Meeting was willing to approve these payments and cover them from the organizational budget. This year's WLM OC has no authority to pass the borders of the budget and is to consult with the Board and AC if something is up. We believe that some CoI Policy is to be developed and communication is better organized (now we have a google group, a mailing list, a skype chat and we are trying to make public as much as we can ASAP). And this year's OC consists of 11 volunteers[6] and there is no OC chairman this year, thus people are not led into wrong belief that one person is enough to hold such a contest and its success is this one person's work. We do believe that installing some Wikipedian practices will do us (as the organization) some good;
  6. It is very difficult to measure the impact of a single WMUA project on the community, but it is very important, as only then it is possible to find out which projects are to be supported and which are not. We are to work hard on this;
  7. It is very important to diversify our sources of income, as relying only on WMF is not very good for the stability of our projects. The problem is that the Ukrainian firms are not getting much if they donate (no favorable environment created by law), thus getting them to donate is tricky.

Project goal and measures of success[edit]

This section should reference the project goals and measures of success described in the approved grant submission. See Grants:PEG/WM UA/Programs in Ukraine 2012 to review the goals and metrics listed in the approved submission.

Project goal[edit]

Provide the project goal here.
  • to popularize Wikimedia projects in Ukraine
  • to involve GLAMs, science and ethnographers' associations to Wikimedia movement
Did you achieve your project goal? How do you know your goal was achieved? Please answer in 1 - 2 paragraphs.
Unfortunately, no figures were presented in the grant submission. Thus it is difficult to talk about achievements not vaguely. We have been striving to popularize Wikimedia projects in Ukraine through contests (mostly oriented at newcomers), keep wikipedians already interested (that is what souvenirs are for), by organizing wikiexpeditions, wikizghushchivka and other projects. WEP is very important for us. GLAM was not such a success[7], alas, but we expect to have some results for all our hard work this year.

Measures of success[edit]

List the measures of success exactly as provided in the approved grant submission, and evaluate your project according to each measure listed there.
  • Measures for Wikiexpeditions:
    • number of illustrations uploaded to Commons (per expedition, total): more than 3300
    • number of towns/villages/places documented (total): 109 cities and villages from 12 regions
    • number of articles improved with materials from Wikiexpeditions: more than 70
  • Measures for the camera:
    • number of illustrations made with the camera and uploaded to Commons (per year) over 3,000 (almost all in 2013)
  • Measures for Wiki Loves Monuments:
    • number of participants: 648
    • number of illustrations uploaded to Wikicommons: 33,280
    • number of publications in press: 119
  • Measures for Staff dealing with digitalizing voluminous publications
    • scope of the digitalized free materials: 0 (not funded -> project canceled)
    • number of pages created/improved with such materials: 0 (not funded -> project canceled)

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.

Provide an overall assessment of how your project went according to these measures.
Wikiexpeditions could have been more successful, but for this they are to be planned regularly. Wiki Loves Monuments photography contest was a very successful project, but a lot of work is to be done still (like we need a lot of articles to insert the images, the images uploaded are to be categorized etc).
If you were to plan a similar project, would you measure it differently? If yes, please explain how.
Yes, we would put numbers.


This section ties this project to Wikimedia's broader goals, and shows what the project accomplished.

What impact did this project have on WMF's mission and the strategic goals? Please answer in 1–2 paragraphs and include specific measures of impact such as the number of readers or editors reached by a particular project, or the number of articles edited or improved.
Stabilize infrastructure
Increase participation
Improve quality
Increase reach
Encourage innovation
There were a lot of projects included in the grant submission, they were all aimed at increasing participation and reach (contests, weeks, wikiexpeditions etc), improving quality and encourage innovations.

Reporting and documentation of expenditures[edit]

Are there additional sources of revenue that funded any part of this project? List them here.
YES. The hall rent was covered by our partners for the Wikiconference and for WMUA General Meeting, and some travel expenses were covered by volunteers themselves, also some work was done on a voluntary basis. WLM 2012 organizational committee decided to award with the bonus payments some of the its volunteers, but as the grant submission did not include such budget lines and the reallocation request was never submitted, WMUA GM decided to approve the payments done and cover them from the organizational budget[11]. Also some post expenses were covered by WMUA.
