About Wiki Loves Africa
Wiki Loves Africa (http://www.wikilovesafrica.org) is a public annual
contest where people across Africa can contribute media (photographs,
video and audio) about their environment to Wikimedia Commons for use on
Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Wiki Loves Africa particularly encourages participants to contribute
media that illustrate a specific theme for that year. Each year the
theme changes and could include any universal, visually rich and
culturally specific topic (for example, markets, rites of passage,
festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life,
notable persons, etc).
The 2015 theme is: Cultural Fashion and Adornment
The competition scope is: media that shows representations of cultural
dress and fashion; specifically fashion that is defined by local
cultural influences and determines cloth, styles, ways of wrapping and
hanging, etc. Adornment is also part of the theme, which means that
media of culturally defined jewellery, make-up, hairstyles and
headdresses, cloths, scarification and tattoos, woven materials, etc.
can also be entered.
