Wiki Loves Africa Messaging and Branding[edit]

Wiki Loves Africa is an annual contest that visually celebrates the African continent. The contest has been going held for 8 years and has an established and recognisable brand. There are generic materials to allow for organisers to communicate about the impact of Wiki Loves Africa over the years it has been held.

Every year, the international team supplies materials and resources that are specific to that year's theme. Below are the materials for local organisers to spread the word and provide visibility for the contest in their area.

Here is a separate page for messaging about the contest and how to speak to the press.

Please feel free to translate these materials into your local languages, and share them on Commons under the Wiki Loves Africa 2023 Communications category.

If you have any suggestions or requests for additional materials you feel would be useful, please contact Isla Haddow-Flood via the email on her userpage.

Wiki Loves Africa will run for the 9th time in 2023. Along the years, a lot of material has been created and is available for organisers to use and adapt as they see fit. Or you might prefer to create your own material.
