Wikipedia Asian Month is an annual online event that aims to promote Asian content in Wikipedia. Since 2015, each participating local community runs an online Edit-a-thon 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 4 years, over 28,000 high quality articles were created on more than 60 Wikipedia projects by more than 2,000 Wikipedia editors.
