Questions and comments from GAC[edit]

Hi Iván, thanks for the submission. I have no specific comments. It's seems to me reasonable and not so much expensive project. All the best with it!--MikyM (talk) 12:52, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure if ask for 170 t-shirts is something I'm ok with, but since the cost is so small i'm willing to ignore :D But my question come from some part of the contest you didnt mentioned: Who will finance the prizes? Béria Lima msg 07:38, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Dear Beria, we have confirmed to Telmex and Fundación Carlos Slim as the main sponsors of prizes and venues of press conference and awarding ceremony. But, this week our partners of fotofestin will add other prizes. Regards, --ProtoplasmaKid (WM-MX) (talk) 05:05, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
The shirts are inexpensive indeed, and I'm fine with the total amount, but I'm still curious -- why 170? Asaf Bartov (WMF Grants) talk 03:19, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
Dear Asaf, I've broken down the numbers of the shirts in the grant proposal. Regards, --ProtoplasmaKid (WM-MX) (talk) 05:05, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
  • Can you explain how are you about to effectively spread stickers and posters, and where? Polimerek (talk) 10:22, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
Hi Polimerek, we will spread the stickers in the public events of WLM and the posters in cultural venues, schools of photography, 30 stations of Mexico City subway and universities with the help of our volunteers in Mexico City and Puebla. Two of our supporters (Telmex and (Telmex and Instituto Politécnico Nacional)) requested to us posters and they will be in charge for the spreading. Regards, --ProtoplasmaKid (WM-MX) (talk) 05:05, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
