Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Contest in Nigeria 2022

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Contest in Nigeria 2022

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Contest in Nigeria is an annual campaign where Wikipedians in Nigeria add photos to articles lacking images. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various Wikimedia photography contests, organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages. Photos improve readers' experience, illustrate content, and make articles engaging. The campaign would also help sharpen the skills of new and existing editors.

How to participate

  1.   Check whether you're eligible. Eligibility rules have been revised in the 2022 edition and participants are required to have an account that's at least a year old.
  2.   Find an article that needs a photo. There are many ways to do this. Some tips.
  3.   Select the appropriate image on Commons. Click here to search for the image using the correct title or category. There are several ways to do this. See this simple media reuse guide. Additional tips.
  4.   On the article page, click Edit and insert the image selected in Step 3, including a brief caption in the WP's language. Check the display position in "Preview" and make any necessary changes. Then click on "Publish changes".
  5.   Include the hashtag #WPWPNG in the edit summary of all articles improved with images.
  6.   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. You may also participate by creating new articles for quality photos.
