Wiki Loves Africa is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute media that relates to that year's theme to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wiki Loves Africa encourages participants to contribute media (photographs, video and audio) that illustrate the specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes and is chosen by the community from universal, visually-rich and culturally-specific topics (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc).

This edition of the contest focuses on "Play". The Ilorin Wikimedia Hub once again organized the Wiki Loves Africa 2019 photowalks, workshops and upload sessions in Ilorin. A major photowalk was also organized through Unilorin Wikimedia Fan Club, which would mark the first time that the university wikiclub is organizing A Wiki Loves Africa event. The response to the Wiki Loves Africa in Nigeria has been great this year again. Nigeria led the continent once again, with over 1,000 images submitted for the contest.



There were two major photowalks for Wiki Loves Africa 2019 in Nigeria. The first one happened on the 2nd February 2019. The second One was organized by the University of Ilorin Wiki Fan Club on 16th February 2019.
