It is exciting to support WikiLovesAfrica’s 2020 and show people what is happening with the competition in your country! There is an international communications team for the duration of the competition, but we would love your support wherever possible! Here are some ways you can do just that:

SHARE OUR POSTS
Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds and share our posts. The more organic reach we get the more we will be rewarded with so every share counts.

COMMENT ON OUR POSTS
Comment and tag on the comments of a post. Any words of encouragement or tagging a friend or organization on the comments feed will also help Wiki Loves Africa to be seen by more people, more often.

MAKE YOUR OWN POSTS
We realise you may want to personalize your call to enter or mention your own events happening locally, but please make sure you note the following:

  1. Include the hashtag #wikilovesafrica on all your posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  2. The shortlink to the info page and entry is bit.ly/EnterWLA2020 photographs you post on Social Media
  3. Make sure that the photos you use are big enough, and do not distort or pixelate
  4. When writing a post about a local event, please include the location or country in your post (this can be done straight away or as a hashtag) – this will cause less confusion when people repost or share your post with their individual accounts
  5. There are standard headers for Facebook and Twitter as well as a standard Instagram post that you are welcome to use. Please find them in the Social Media templates section below (to come)
  6. Be sure to include these bits of info – not necessarily all at once but over a few posts.
  • The competition is open to anyone, anywhere but the subject matter Transport or Africa on the Move must represent something that took place in Africa or relates to African culture
