The contest will focus on visuals and audio visuals about the various occupations, professions and jobs in Tunisia. This quest is important in documenting every aspect of Tunisia in the attempt of sharing knowledge about our country. We also deem this opportunity crucial in gathering pictures of some very important figures, such as ministers and government representatives, business men and women in different areas of work.

2. How will you let people know about the contest?

We will use our social media channels, the mailing list for the community and other tech and volunteer communities to reach out to enthusiasts.

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

We will have a panel of judges who will set criteria for best images and use these as a basis to select the best images for local awards.

4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?

We will have follow up edit-a-thons to help integrate some of these uploaded images into existing articles on Wikipedia and using Wikidata for other languages too. For the ones without existing articles, we will create new articles so as to make use of them.

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

WLA Tunisia 2016, was a great experience and we are ready for the new challenge.
