We are proud to announce the launch of the 5th Wiki Loves Africa
photographic contest, on the 1st of February 2019.
This year, the theme of the contest will be PLAY.
The theme Play! encourages the submission of visual representations of
joyful and serious games, sport, and recreation in the form of board or
mental games, physical fun or contests, playful interactions, theatrical
and musical performances, etc. It is intentionally broad and open to
interpretation.*Play*is a range of voluntary, intrinsically motivated
activities done for recreational pleasure and enjoyment.
As with last year, there will be two separate prize categories for
photos and media that encompass:
As its name might make it obvious... this is about Africa. But diaspora
and interested people from everywhere around the world are welcome to
participate... as long as it is related to Africa :)
Compared to previous years, the contest will be shorter this year (one
month instead of two). But we expect no less success !
If you want to help (photo cleanup, relaying messages, translations
etc.), please contact us or simply jump in.
