WPWP Contest at University of Ilorin
Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) is an annual campaign where Wikipedians across Wikipedia language projects and communities add photos to articles lacking images. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various WP photography contests, organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages. Photos help to grasp the reader's attention better than a wall of text, illustrate content, and make the article more instructive and engaging for readers!
How to participate
Find an article that needs a photo. There are many ways to do this. Here are some tips.
Select the appropriate image on Commons. Click here to search for the image using the correct title or category. There are several ways to do this. See this simple media reuse guide. Here are additional tips.
On the article page, click Edit and insert the image selected in Step 3, including a brief caption in the WP's language. Check the display position in "Preview" and make any necessary changes. Then click on "Publish changes".
Images must be used between July 1st to July 31st 2020.
There is no limit to the number of files one can use. There are, however, different categories of prizes (see below).
The image must be published under a free use license or as public domain. The possible licenses are CC-BY-SA 4.0, CC-BY 4.0, CC0 1.0.
Participants must be a registered user on any Wikimedia project. Sign in or Create a new account on Wikipedia (You can create an account on any language Wikipedia, for use in your own WP and on all Wikimedia projects). The list of all languages of Wikipedia can be found here.
Poor or very low-quality photos are generally not acceptable.
Participants must include the hashtag #WPWP
#WPWPUIL in the Edit summary of all articles improved with images in addition to a descriptive edit summary, for example "Adding image to infobox" #WPWP #WPWPUIL. Do not insert the hashtag (#WPWP #WPWPUIL) into an article.
