Welcome to the Wikimedia edit-a-thon Wiki Loves Sport 2023

Wikimedia and Wikipedia have deep content gaps based on gender, linguistic and ethnic minorities etc. The contest is organized by WikiDonne User Group: our goal is to improve the free knowledge about sport (with a special focus on women, LGBT+ communities, para athletics, minorities and underrepresented groups), in all languages. For organizations or institutions that want to collaborate during this contest, please contact us on the discussion page.
