Project description[edit | edit source]

Send someone to Bovington museum tankfest 2015 to get photos of videos of tanks in motion. Tanks generals photograph better if you can be a reasonable distance from them (10s of meters) tankfest offers both the opportunity to photograph them at some distance and to video them in motion.

Impact and benefits[edit | edit source]

How will this project support Wikimedia UK's Outcomes, charitable objects and vision, values and mission?
High quality images and videos of tanks that can be used to improve articles articles across a range of languages. While Bovington no longer runs is WW1 tanks it does run a replica and a high quality video would be useful for the centenary


Update?[edit source]

Hi Geni, is this grant application still live, or could it be closed? You will see from the Grants page that grants can be paid only to members of the charity, so you'd either need to join or include in the grant proposal a member who would receive the funds. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 14:31, 28 May 2015 (BST)

I contacted Geni by email about the grant and it is being archived for the moment, though may be reopened next year when there is more capacity available. Richard Nevell (WMUK) (talk) 15:37, 28 May 2015 (BST)
