We did a long research in 2014 to define the prizes as described in the budget request and reports to WMF.
A lot of contests in Brasil pay prizes around R$10.000-R$60.000, the value of the prizes that we gave in Brasil are considered low by many participants and professionals in that field. As described on the grant requests, the prizes was approved by GAC and WMF staff my friend. I really cant get your point here! You had the opportunity to organize this contest for many years and nothing was done. Why you never tried to organize that contests by yourself following your recomendations, ideas and values of prizes since you are so interested in that subject? Our planning pages are always open to contributions, not fallacies. To criticize is always the easiest way to feel contributing. Just do something my friend and help us to move forward, not backward!
