Wiki Loves Africa 2024: Africa Creates

Wiki Loves Africa is a photographic, video and audio contest.

The 2024 theme is Africa Creates.

NEXT UP: Jury Process and Winners Announcement

Visually celebrate Africa on Wikipedia

Out of the millions of subjects you can read about on Wikipedia, those that relate to Africa have the least coverage. This is due to a number of reasons, but some are linked to the fact that many people do not know that they can have the knowledge of their continent and cultures reflected on Wikipedia by donating their images, videos and audio to Wikimedia.
The richness, diversity and beauty of Africa deserves to be visually celebrated on Wikipedia.
YOU can help to do this. Its super simple and everyone is welcome to participate!

What should YOU contribute? Pictures! Audio! Videos!

The theme Africa Creates calls for the submission of media (photos, audio, video) representations of the process of creation or manufacture, and not on the final product itself. If the final product is featured, please do not make it the central focus of the image or video.

These photos below illustrate some aspects of the theme, there here to inspire you!
