June month is also known as pride month. During the month, there are other important days such as International Bicycle Day (3 June), World Environment Day (5 June), World Ocean Day (8 June), World Day against Child Labour (12 June), and ( World Blood Donor Day (14 June) etc.

This edit-a-thon will happen on 25 June and 26 June.

  • To celebrate the month of June which is known as pride day also. During the edit-a-thon, will create or develop the content related to special days of the June only.
Time & Date
  • 25 June - 26 June 2022
  • 24 June 2022 00:01 hours and 25 June 2022 23:59 hours



This will be an online event. However, any community that wants to conduct an on-ground small event for these two days, can conduct it.

Note: For conducting the event you can email us at program@cis-india.org or you can request us on our request page.


For participating in this edit-a-thon, you can choose/edit any Wikimedia project such as Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, Wikisource, Wikiquote etc and make some improvements, just like in previous edit-a-thons. These are some contributions you can make:

  • Create a Wikipedia article about days of the month of June, directly or indirectly.
  • If the article already exists then you can expand a Wikipedia article (or you can copyedit, add reliable references, fix typos, add relevant images etc.)
  • Create Wikidata items or improve Wikidata items related to June days, directly or indirectly.
  • Upload or improve images on Wikimedia Commons if you click during the month of June which is connected to the edit-a-thon. Other than uploading images, you may improve image details such as improving description, writing image descriptions in your native languages, adding/improving structured data etc. Also, you can add photos to Wikipedia articles, which do not have enough photos, from Wikimedia commons. Wikimedians can also create their own SVGs and upload to Wikimedia Commons.
  • You can work on Wikisource as well if you have any book on book/article which you have on Wikisource. Proofread any page related to a specific language-related book in your own language.
  • Add or improve quotes on Wikiquotes.
  • This edit-a-thon is not limited to any specific Wikimedia project. You can select any Wikimedia project (like; Wikibooks, Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia, Wikisource etc.) of your interest to contribute about languages.

Note: All edits must follow a project's and the community's policies and guidelines. Please consider making a high-quality contribution. You can work on more than one project.


Please add your username below. Also include the project names you worked on. You may add the project names after the completion of your work also.


This is an effort to engage Indian Wikimedians on the same platform and it is not a competition, but more like a celebration. We do not have any target of NN number of articles to be created or expanded, or BB bytes to be added. The idea is to make some contribution.
