Project Plan[edit]

1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community? The contest is aimed at recruiting new editors to improve existing articles with quality photos and appropriate captions. This contest will bring together graduates from different universities to make contributions to Wikipedia. The editors will have hands on experience on how to upload pictures to commons and how to use existing images on commons on Wikipedia.

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.

You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.
