WikiLovesAfrica Local Meetup 2023 (Climate and Weather changes in Nigeria)
Wiki Loves Africa is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute media related to that year's theme to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other WIkimedia projects. Wiki Loves Africa 2023 Senior Citizens Network encourages participants to contribute media (photographs, video and audio) that illustrate the specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes. Each year's theme is chosen by the community to be a universal, visually-rich and culturally-specific topics (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc).. Everybody can participate.
This year, Nigeria participates again, and you are encouraged to submit any photos about Climate and Weather in Nigeria between 15th March and 30 April 2023. By submitting your photos to the competition, you share the climate beauty of Nigeria with the rest of the world to enjoy through the internet. We will explain below how to participate, what kind of pictures is eligible.
