Do give information on what you have done on Wikimedia projects thus far/how you can help/how attending will benefit you or others. You don't need to be an experienced Wikipedia editor to apply (that is an added benefit), we encourage applications from newbies as well - their application should demonstrate their passion and enthusiasm and their reason for wanting to attend the event. Wikipedia is a Free and Open Knowledge base and people who support this in any way are encouraged to attend this conference.
