Not funded[edit]

Hi Craig Sik. Thank you for your interest in promoting Wikipedia and improving the quality of articles about wildlife, parks, and historic sites in Ghana. Our understanding of the project is that you hope to create videos that will then be added to Wikipedia articles. You also want to do events to show people how the videos were made and increase awareness about how they can contribute to Wikipedia. Unfortunately we cannot fund direct content creation for the Wikimedia projects. In terms of awareness grants, we can fund video campaigns that focus on increasing awareness of the Wikimedia projects. Please let us know if you would like to discuss an awareness campaign in the future. Best, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 22:41, 30 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not funded[edit]

Dear CraigSik, thank you for responding to my colleague Alex Wang (WMF)'s comments. We are happy to hear that you are interested in pursuing a video awareness campaign.

However, in comparing your previous application to this new one it appears that you have made no substantial changes to the project you originally proposed. For that reason, I am going to once again mark this proposal as Not Funded. Please do not change its status.

If you wish to submit a *new* application for a video awareness campaign project, please do so during one of our normal application windows, which are the 1st through the 15th of every month. (Please note that, per our Guidelines and Criteria in December we will only accept applications for Wiki Loves Africa projects, and in January we will only accept applications for Art + Feminism projects, so the earliest you could reapply is February 1-15, 2020.) Also kindly note in the guidelines that all grant requests must be between $500-$2,000 USD. Best regards, WJifar (WMF) (talk) 01:27, 28 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
