Wiki Loves Africa (EN)

Wiki Loves Africa is a public annual contest where people across Africa can contribute media (photographs, video and audio) about their environment to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wiki Loves Africa particularly encourages participants to contribute media that illustrate a specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes and could include any universal, visually rich and culturally specific topic (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc). The project is run across the whole continent, however, some specific actions (training, communication etc.) are held in some countries with national organisers. The 2016 theme is Dance and Music. The contest takes place from 1st of December 2016 till 31st of January 2017. Images and media should promote Africa's rich heritage and culture expressed through music, song, dance, performance and movement. To participate:
