All the articles created or improved within the contest will be evaluated using the following scoring system.
- Below 5 kB added - 0 points
- Between 5 kB and 20 kB added - 10 points
- Between 20 kB and 30 kB added - 20 points
- More than 30 kB added - 30 points
- Articles related prioritized countries or regions will get an additional 50% bonus in their points.
Only articles created in the participating categories and related to the countries considered for the contest will be evaluated. Lists or galleries won't be considered for the contest. Articles with a size over 10 kB before the start of the contest won't be considered too.
Articles deleted, content removed or articles tagged as automatic translations before January 10th, 2020, will not be considered for the final results.
In case a participant edits in different Wikipedia languages, the score will be the sum of the points from those projects in the same region. In case one participant wins the prize in both parts of the contest, it will be considered only as the winner in the region with the highest points, while the prize in the other region will be given to the participant with the next highest points.
Twelve prizes will be given, according to the points obtained by the users. There will be prizes for the top 3 users from each one of the participating regions. Also, there will be a prize to the best entry, one for each region, that will be chosen by the organizing committee of the contest.
- First place: A USD 250 gift card, or equivalent.
- Second place: A USD 150 gift card, or equivalent.
- Third place: A USD 100 gift card, or equivalent.
- Quality prize: A USD 250 gift card, or equivalent.
As the main organizer of the contest, Wikimedia Chile will use international websites like Amazon or similar to deliver the aforementioned prizes. However, we can't secure this will be possible for every country or jurisdiction. The organizing committee will do their best efforts to deliver the prizes for each winner across the globe.
