Wikipedia Asian Month is an annual online event that aims to promote Asian content in Wikipedia. Since 2015, each participating community runs a local online Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on their own language Wikipedia every November, which promotes the creation or improvement of the Wikipedia content about Asia except their own country. The participating community is not limited to Asia. In past two years, over 13,000 high quality articles were created on more than 50 Wikipedia projects by more than 2,000 Wikipedia editors.
