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[edit]

1 Sign in or Create a New Account on Wikipedia (You can create account on any language Wikipedia including your own language). The list of all language Wikipedia can be found here.

2 Find an article that needs a photo. There are many ways to do this. Here are some tips.

3Select 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.

4On 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".

5 Include the hashtags #WPWP and #WPWPUIL in the edit summary of all articles improved with images. Remember to use a descriptive edit summary, for example "Adding image to infobox (#WPWP #WPWPUIL)".

6 You may also participate by creating new articles for quality photos.
