Traditionally, the celebration of the 18th birthday of Wikipedia was marked on an event organized in the Concept 37 club in Skopje. The event included a broader program of activities such as presentations about Wikipedia and editing articles on Wikipedia, granting the awards to the winners of the Wiki Loves Food 2018 photographic contest and the last editing competition about Islands organized in December, as well as accolades to most contributing members of the community and short Wikisketch training. Тhe occasion of the 18th birthday of Wikipedia attracted quite large audience of more than 30 attendees. Also, several media such as web portals, newspapers have written articles and we were guests on the morning program of the Macedonian National Radio where we have talked about Wikipedia.
