Report accepted[edit]

Hello Macdanpets and WPWP organizing team, thank you for submitting this final report for the international WPWP campaign. We are grateful for your immense work on this campaign. Please convey our gratitude to the whole organizing team!

I have reviewed the report and linked pages and have some comments and questions for you:

  • Firstly, congratulations again on a huge success! We are amazed with the outcomes and inclusiveness of the WPWP campaign.
  • You mentioned that you’d like to work on a more effective tool to track the contributions of participants. Have you already started working on this task? Do you have any progress so far?
  • You also mentioned that sometimes the coordination between communities was not sufficient. What will you do to increase the effectiveness of collaboration between these communities for the next campaign?
  • Thanks for sharing the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos - Evaluation Report 2020, it summarizes your campaign perfectly and provides lots of valuable data to think about.
  • I’m glad to hear that aside from Wikimedia affiliates, some GLAM organizations, such as the National Library and Archives of Quebec, have also joined the WPWP campaign. Hopefully, you can reach out to more of them this year!
  • When reviewing the WPWP grants, one of the challenges on our end was deciding on the amount and number of international / local prizes. Do you have any suggestions on how we can accommodate this? How can we distribute local and international prizes among different communities to ensure the best efficiency?

Thanks again for all your contributions to the Wikimedia Movement. The final report and expense documents are reviewed and accepted for this project. It means that the grant is now complete! Best regards, DSaroyan (WMF) (talk) 12:44, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

DSaroyan (WMF) We'd like to use this opportunity to thank you and the community resource team at the WMF for the support we received. The project was a strategic approach to minimizing offline activities during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are happy about the impact and successes recorded. To respond to your question on how to decide on the amount and number of international / local prizes and how to effectively distribute local and international prizes among different communities, the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos - Evaluation Report 2020 suggests that the average national campaign cost $834.77 USD to implement. This cost covers prizes, internet and communication support as most of the events/activities were primarily online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Essentially, local prizes should be under $500. This year, we are working with the WMF Campaign team to look at prize strategy and possibly design a best approach to awarding prizes for campaigns.
On the 25th of March 2021, the Wikimedia Foundation Campaigns Team held the 5th Office Hour and there was a panel discussion on evaluating ideal use of prizes or rewards for campaigns. I was on the panel with other international campaign leaders in the Wikimedia movement. It was an insightful discussions. Recommendation and suggestions were made which I believe will be valuable for designing the prize structure. T CellsTalk 13:50, 26 April 2021 (UTC)
