HELP ILLUSTRATE WIKIPEDIA : EVERY YEAR, PHOTOS FROM THE CONTEST SHOULD ILLUSTRATE Wikipedia articles (*) !

Every year, thousands of images are uploaded to Wikimedia Commons database as part of the Wiki Loves Africa photo contest.
But not every picture makes it into Wikipedia... and to be fair, not all images should make it there. Only the best, only the most useful, the most intriguing. A picture should only be added when it improves an article.
Sometimes, a user will use an image to illustrate an article in a language... let's say English... but perhaps... it makes sense to also use that same image in the equivalent article in a different language !

The page below suggest additions of images to one source language to a target language. Check it out...

Insert an image already used in one language wikipedia to another article in a different language wikipedia[edit]

Call to action here

Images from Wiki Loves Africa have primarily been inserted into French speaking articles (though some of them are on the English wikipedia, the Arabic etc.).
When an image has been inserted into a wikipedia article in French, and an equivalent article exists in English, there are chances that the article used on the French article be interesting to illustrate the article in English (this can be said of all languages).

So the list below give suggestions of images used in one language, that could be added to another language. Pick up your choices and insert Wiki Loves Africa images into Wikipedia articles to help decolonize the encyclopedia ;)

This list needs to be updated manually. So when you inserted an image, considering removing or stricking the line of what has been done.

Participation to WPWP Campaign[edit]

What is WPWP ?
Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) is an annual campaign where Wikipedians across Wikipedia language projects and communities add photos to Wikipedia articles lacking images. It runs from July 1st 2020 till August 31st 2020.

Why WPWP ?

This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various photography contests, photowalks 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. Thousands of images have been donated and contributed to Wikipedia Commons via various advocacy programs, photowalks, and contests including international photography contests such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc. Yet relatively few of these photos have been used on Wikipedia articles. Today, the Wikimedia Commons hosts millions of photo images but only a tiny portion of these have been used on Wikipedia article pages. This is a huge gap that this project aims at bridging.

About Wiki Loves Africa participation to WPWP

The Wiki Loves Africa team wants to participate to WPWP 2020 in the following way :
We want to push for the insertion of images submitted as part of former Wiki Loves Africa photo contests into Wikipedia articles for the following languages : Igbo (ig), Swahili (sw), Yoruba (yo), Luganda (lg), Hausa (ha), Shona (sn), Amharic (am), Lingala (ln) and Afrikaans (af). The participant with the most quality insertion of images in any of those languages will be duly celebrated and offered a voucher of US 100.
