Grants:Project/Rapid/Ferdinand/Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos in Burundi 2021

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
est un concours annuel, commun à toutes les versions linguistiques de Wikipédia, destiné à ajouter des photos dans les articles qui en manquent. Il s'agit de promouvoir l'utilisation des illustrations provenant des concours photographiques et des « randonnées photographiques » organisés par la communauté Wikimedia. Les photos aident à capter l'attention des lecteurs, mieux qu'un pavé de texte, illustrent les contenus et rendent les articles plus instructifs et attrayants. Des milliers d'images ont été données et versées sur Wikimedia Commons grâce à des programmes dédiés, à des promenades photos et des concours internationaux tels que Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc. Pourtant, peu de ces photos sont utilisées dans les articles de Wikipédia. Actuellement, Wikimedia Commons abrite des millions de photos mais seule une faible proportion est utilisée sur les pages des articles Sikipédia. C'est un énorme fossé que ce projet vise à combler.

Project Plan[edit]


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos seront axé sur l'utilisation de fichiers multimédias gratuits sur les articles Wikipédia en rapport avec le Burundi. Des milliers d'images ont été prissées et apportées à Wikimedia Commons via divers programmes de plaidoyer, des promenades photos et des concours, y compris des concours de photographie internationaux tels que Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, etc. Pourtant, relativement peu de ces photos ont été utilisées sur des articles de Wikipédia. Wikimedia Commons héberge plus de 73 millions de fichiers, mais seule une infime partie de celles-ci a été utilisée sur les pages d'articles de Wikipédia. Sur Wikipedia en Kirundi, les articles liés au Projet Burundi contiennent moins d'images d'illustration et ce concours permettra de résoudre ce problème.

2. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.

4. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

Nous allons mettre en place un comité indépendant de juges pour examiner les contributions et attribuer des prix en fonction du classement des utilisateurs les plus actif sur la réutilisation des images sur les articles appropries sur Wikipédia.
