About the event

Wikipedia Asian Month is an annual Wikipedia contest focused on promotion of Asian content in different language Wikipedia. Each participating community runs a month-long online edit-a-thon every November at their local language Wikipedias and create new content about Asia except their own country. Participation is not limited to Asian communities.

The first iteration of this competition began in 2015 and each year, the article counts and participating communities have diversified and expanded. In the past three years, over 20,500 high qualities articles have been added in more than 50 language Wikipedia by more than 2000 Wikipedia editors.

As a part of friendship and culture exchange of Wikipedia Asian Community, participants who create at least four articles receive a special Wikipedia Postcard from another participating community.

Get ready to be surprised! You never know which Wiki community will be sending you postcards!
