Wikipedia Takes Mumbai II
Amount requested (in INR)
Provisional target start date
28 January 2012
Provisional completion date
28 January 2012

Budget breakdown

  • Prince of Wales Museum: Rs. 200 per camera + 30 Rs entrance fees. I got 50% discount in entrance fees being a college student with barely flashing the college ID card at the entrance. Hence I got the work done at Rs. 215/-.

Project goal

Wikipedia Takes Mumbai, like other Photo scavenger hunts would help to deposit hundreds of city related images and would also encourage other non-Wikipedia participants to contribute in the same.

Non-financial requirements

Would be very much helpful if any media cover our event in their news papers the next day.

Fit to strategy

Other benefits

"We believe we can get some positive media attention for this photowalk, which may also persuade other content owners and Indian government to free up their material."

Measures of success

Number of quality and quantity files uploaded will determine its success. Other content owners and Indian government freeing up their media will be the best result for Wikimedia India chapter.
