Dear fellow Wikimedians,

We would like to remind you of the open call for applications to join the
Wikimedia accelerator program – UNLOCK <>.

Applications are open until May 29th!

== What type of ideas are we looking for? ==

The program calls for ideas and projects that break down social and
technical barriers preventing people from both accessing and contributing
to free knowledge. The ideas could cover


   new technologies or tools that support more diverse modes and formats of
   knowledge (audio, visual, video, etc.). One example for this is an UNLOCK
   2020 project Audiopedia – an open source platform for audio content that
   addresses primarily non-readers in the Global South <>; or

   further development of existing Wikimedia projects to create new impact
   projects, such as GovDirectory (participants in UNLOCK 2021) – a global
   directory of government agencies and their online presence by utilizing
   Wikidata. This project does not only use Wikidata, but also help improve
   the data on Wikidata <>;

   alternative practices and concepts that create more opportunities for
   everyone to participate in free knowledge projects – your idea for a more
   inclusive representation of the diverse knowledge of our world.

== Who can apply? ==

We are looking for Wikimedians as well as free knowledge enthusiasts,
developers, designers and activists from outside the Wikimedia movement.
UNLOCK 2022 has a geographical focus on Western Balkans and German-speaking

== Additional information and support ==

Please head over to the UNLOCK program page for details <>.

If you require further assistance with your application or if you have an
idea but are not sure whether or not to apply, feel free to reach out to
the organizing team behind the program via email:

All the best

Kannika (WMDE) and Ivana (WMRS)
