Home Participating Communities Organizing Team Participate Results Resources FAQ

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2023 ist nun die vierte Ausgabe einer jährlich wiederkehrenden Kampagne, in der Autoren weltweit in Sprachprojekten und Communities bewusst nach Seiten suchen, denen unterstützendes Bildmaterial fehlt. Dies soll die Nutzung der digitalen Medien, die bei vielen Wikimedia-Fotowettbewerben oder bei durch die Wikimedia-Community organisierten Fotowanderungen anfallen, fördern. Im Gegensatz zu endlos langem Fließtext helfen Bilder, die Aufmerksamkeit des Lesers zu erregen, Inhalte anschaulicher zu illustrieren und den Text insgesamt zu bereichern, um so den Text am Ende lehrreicher und anregender für den Leser zu gestalten.

Wikimedia Commons wurden Tausende von Bildern gespendet — durch Advocy Programs, Fotowanderungen, internationale Wettbewerbe wie Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore und vielen weiteren. Doch nur relativ wenige dieser Fotos werden am Ende in Wikipediaartikeln verwendet. Heute hält Wikimedia Commons Millionen von Bildern bereit, doch nur eine winzig kleine Teilmenge davon wird tatsächlich in unseren Artikeln verwendet. Diese riesengroße Lücke versucht dieses Projekt zu schließen.

Wie du beitragen kannst

Bevor du teilnimmst, ist es wichtig, dass du die Teilnahmebedingungen, die du unten findest, gelesen und verstanden hast. Teilnehmer, die sich nicht an die Regeln halten, können unter Umständen sogar disqualifiziert werden.

  1. Prüfe zunächst, ob du überhaupt teilnehmen kannst. Die entsprechenden Bedingungen wurden für die Kampagne 2023 überarbeitet. Teilnehmer müssen einen Nutzeraccount haben, den es mindestens schon seit einem Jahr gibt.
  2. Suche einen Artikel, der ein Bild benötigt. Es gibt einige Wege, wie du das tun kannst: Hier findest du einige Tipps.
  3. Find an appropriate image on Commons. Search for the image using the correct title or category. There are several ways to do this. See this simple media reuse guide. Here are additional tips. Please note that the purpose of an image is to increase readers' understanding of the article's subject matter, usually by directly depicting people, things, activities, and concepts described in the article. The relevant aspect of the image should be clear and central. The images must be significant and relevant in the topic's context, not primarily decorative.
  4. On the article page, find a section where the image is relevant and helps the reader understand the subject. Click Edit and insert the image, and include a brief caption explaining what the image depicts in the article. Use the best quality images available. Poor-quality images—dark or blurry; showing the subject too small, hidden in clutter, or ambiguous; and so on—should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Think carefully about which images best illustrate the subject matter. You MUST provide an edit summary for all your edits, "Preview" and make any necessary changes. Include the hashtag #WPWP in the edit summary of all articles improved with images. Then click on "Publish changes". Please see: Guide on how to use WPWP Campaign Hashtags
  5. Please be mindful of the image syntax! If you are going to add images to the infoboxes in articles, the syntax is a lot easier — just the filename, so rather than [[File:Obamas at church on Inauguration Day 2013.jpg|thumb|The Obamas worship at [[African Methodist Episcopal Church]] in Washington, D.C., January 2013]] simply type The Obamas at church on Inauguration Day 2013.jpg.

Syntax of file names and captions

A boy closely observing a butterfly

Basic example (producing the image at right):
[[File:Cute boy face with butterfly.jpg|thumb|alt=Children are interested in nature.|A boy closely observing a butterfly]]

  • File:Cute boy face with butterfly.jpg The file (image) name must be exact (including capitalization, punctuation and spacing) and must include .jpg, .png or other extension. (Image: and File: work the same.) If Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons both have an image with the specified name, the Wikipedia version is the one that will appear in the article.
  • thumb is required in most cases
  • alt=Children are interested in nature. Alt text is meant for those who cannot see the image; unlike the caption, it summarizes the image's visual information. It should comport with accessibility guidelines and should name notable events, people and things.
  • A boy closely observing a butterfly is a caption and it comes last. It gives more information on what the image is about.

See Extended image syntax on English Wikipedia for further features and options. If the image does not display after you have carefully checked the syntax, it may have been disallowed.

Campaign rules

Images must be used between July 1 to August 31, 2023.

There is no limit to the number of files one can use. There are, however, different categories of prizes. However, do not deface Wikipedia articles with photos. Only add a photo to an article that has no photo.

The image must be published under a free use license or as public domain.

Participation is only allowed for registered users. Registration can be on any Wikimedia project. Additional requirement applies to English Wikipedia only, where participants are required to have had an account for at least a year to be eligible.

Poor or very low-quality photos are generally not acceptable.

  1. The image caption and description must be clear and be suitable for the article.
  2. All image additions must include a caption that describes what the image is of.
  3. Images should be placed where relevant in the article.
  4. Do not add photos to articles in a language you do not speak fluently. Users who repeatedly add captionless images, irrelevant images, etc. may be disqualified.

Participants must include the hashtag #WPWP in the Edit summary of all articles improved with images in addition to a descriptive edit summary, for example "Improving with an image to infobox" #WPWP. Do not insert the hashtag (#WPWP) into an article. Please see: Guide on how to use WPWP Campaign Hashtags. This Guide also explains how to use a Community-specific hashtag.
