WIKI LOVES AFRICA 2020 THEME: AFRICA ON THE MOVE!

WLA 2020 A2 Global Poster.pdf

Wiki Loves Africa 2020 interpretation and ideas for the theme[edit]

The theme Africa on the Move! encourages the submission of visual representations of movement, migration or transportation, whether local or regional, by path, road, sea, or air, self-propelled, or by animal, natural or mechanical means. Submissions could also capture the historical or contemporary structures that have been created to facilitate movement or the transportation of people, goods, or animals.

There are 3 main prizes for Wiki Loves Africa, and as with last year, there will be two additional prize categories for photos and media that encompass:

  • Culturally specific or traditional representations of transport or structures that facilitate transportation
  • best quality video (audio and visual quality and storytelling will be taken into account)

Interpretation of the theme[edit]

The theme can encompass the full representation of modes of transport across the African continent, as well as means the infrastructures (historical and contemporary) that have been developed to facilitate movement of people, animals or goods from one point to another.

Also inherent in the theme is the migration of people from one area, country or region to another, whether for business or personal security.
