Välkommen till Wikipedia-skrivtävlingen för att förbättra täckningen om kvinnor på Wikipedia!

  • Vad: Detta är en publik skrivtävling för att förbättra täckningen om kvinnor på Wikipedia. Målet med denna första upplaga är att skapa och förbättra artiklar för att stärka Wikipedias täckning om kvinnor och relaterade ämnen på så många språk som möjligt, speciellt om de som är hotade. Vinnarna får fina priser. Tävlingen anordnas som en del av den globala WikiGap-kampanjen.

  • How: The contest is simple in structure, based on a KISS point system: You get points while improving articles, with the goal for each participant to gain as many points as possible.

  • Who: Everybody can help in any language to collaborate on writing and/or translating the articles related to women. Any Wikipedian with a named account (on any wiki) can participate. To participate you just need to sign up on the Participants section. At the different WikiGap events around the world we will give the participants information how they successfully can participate.

  • Why: The contest is organized by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Wikimedia Sverige, with support from Swedish embassies and Wikimedia affiliates across the world. Wikipedia is missing articles about all kind of topics and through this contest we hope to improve articles around women. Improving Wikipedia's articles and coverage around women is important to ensure that our readers find high quality information about the people that has helped form our world.


The WikiGap Challenge has come to an end after an intense month. We are proud to say that it has been a fantastic competition with a huge commitment from all of you. Together you have made significant contribution to more than 1,440 articles! Your hard work has helped reduce the gap and has exceeded our wildest expectations!

We hope that many of you continue your work making the gap smaller day by day.

Now we are happy to announce the ten winners of the main prizes in the Challenge:

Congratulations to all of you!
