WLA 22 Participating Communities png.png

Wiki Loves Africa (WLA) is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute free media that is relevant to their experience to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia communities (Wikimedia movement), and also make this shared media freely available for the Humankind.

ウィキはアフリカが好き(Wiki Loves Africa)では参加者の皆さんにメディア(写真、動画、音声)、つまり、その年のテーマに関するものの投稿をお願いしています。テーマはコミュニティによって選定され毎年変わるので、ユニバーサルで視覚素材として豊か、固有の文化を伝えるものを選んでください(一例として市場や成長儀礼、お祭りや公共アート、料理、自然誌、都会の特徴、日常生活、著名人などなど。)


The project is a competition which last took take place from Feb 15th till April 30th 2022


ウィキはアフリカが好き(Wiki Loves Africa )では参加者の皆さんに、特にその年のテーマを表現するメディアの投稿をお願いしています。テーマは毎年変わるので、ユニバーサルで視覚素材として豊か、固有の文化を伝えるものを選んでください(一例として市場や成長儀礼、お祭りや公共アート、料理、自然誌、都会の特徴、日常生活、著名人などなど。)

Wiki Loves Africa particularly encourages participants to contribute media that illustrate a specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes and could include any universal, visually rich and culturally specific topic (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc).

(*) If you wonder why there is no 2018... it is not due to skipping a year. In 2014-2015-2016-2017, the contest was taking place around October-November-December. Then in 2019, we decided to move to January-February-March to better accommodate the wikimedia community calendar of photo contests ;))


The project is run at the entire African continent level. However, every year, specific actions (training, communication etc.) are held in some countries with national organisers.


At the end of the contest, some national organizers host local ceremonies and prizes (some others do not). This is up to local teams to decide if they want to host ceremonies.

In any cases, there is a global jury, and global selection of international winners (usually between 3 to 6), with prizes.

In 2022, the international prizes are:

  • 1st prize: US$2,000
  • 2nd prize: US$1,500
  • 3rd prize: US$1,000
  • Prize for best quality video (audio and visual quality and storytelling will be taken into account): US$1,000
  • Culturally specific or traditional representations of Home and Habitat : US$750
  • Special collection (a series of images that tell a story): US$750
Each winner will also receive a pack of Wiki Loves Africa-branded merchandise.
