Please see the sample Editathon/Training application before drafting your application.

Project GoalEdit

  1. Add or improve content. We plan to cover the upload session because our newbies once experienced a lot of image deletion from the server after contributing. We will dwell more on copy right issues.

Project PlanEdit


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. Are you doing one editathon or training or a series of editathons or trainings?

We are planning one upload session lecture and one edit-a-thon online.

2. How will you let your community know about the event? Please paste links below to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions.

Notification links are posted here on meta page, see link :

3. Do you have experienced Wikimedia editors to lead the event?


4. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Due to the pandemic, we are hosting online activities, and we will need internet and laptops for our participants without pc.

5. How will you engage participants after the event(s)?

This is a follow up from the previous contest (upload session), so we always have a portal to engage our participants.
