We are glad to inform you about the Wiki Loves Africa 2021-WPWP campaign prize categories.
Every year, thousands of images are uploaded to Wikimedia Commons database as part of the https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Africa Wiki Loves Africa photo contest.
Most of these images end up on…let’s say English Wikipedia, but we believe it would be great to use these same images in the equivalent articles in different languages!
So this year, we invite you to take some time to use Wiki Loves Africa images to illustrate Wikipedia articles in various languages. And there are prizes for the most involved!
1st prize - US $100 gift card
1st to 3rd prizes – WLA souvenirs (if the post office is more efficient than it has been in the recent 18 months…)
All Wiki Loves Africa years are eligible (All pictures are available here https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wiki_Loves_Africa_All_Images)… BUT the first prize will consider edits made to any language except English and French.
To be eligible:
- you must add #WLA as a hashtag to your edit (as well as #WPWP)
- you must have registered your account before January 2021
- you must have made at least 300 mainspace edits to any language Wikipedia before 1st June 2021.
