Bridges across Cultures
2nd edition, December 5th, 2018 - January 20th, 2019


We are pleased to announce the results of our multilingual wiki-collaboration contest, Bridges across Cultures, which has taken place among languages from both Latin America and the Middle East & North Africa between December 2018 and January 2019.

The contest was organized by Wikimedia affiliates of different countries with the aim of exchanging cultural experiences and values between the two regions; as the contestants from either Latin America or MENA were asked to write and expand Wikipedia articles related to the rich and unique culture of the other region.

In total, 948 articles were created or improved as part of this contest: 217 articles about Latin American culture were expanded in Arabic, Persian and Turkish Wikipedia, while 731 articles about MENA culture were done in Spanish and Portuguese Wikipedia. 56 different participants submitted at least one article to the contest.

ِ As for the results, six prizes are designated for the best performing contestants (with three being dedicated for the best participants from either Latin America or MENA) and two for the best articles created for the contest (one for each regional group). The prizes will be awarded for the following users:
