Wiki Loves the Olympics 2020
July 15, 2020 - August 15, 2020

Welcome to the Wikipedia writing contest around the Olympics!

  • What?: A new edition of the Summer Olympic Games was planned for 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, these were postponed. Although 2020 is finally not an Olympic year, we would like to maintain the proposal to improve and extend the content on the Olympic Games, and for this third edition we propose to focus on medalists, both Olympic and Paralympic, of any edition of the games. You can participate in any language. The lists of articles are suggestions and you can create or expand others.
  • When?: The writing contest runs from 00:01 July 15 to 23:59 August 15, 2020 (UTC).
  • How?: Points can be achieved by creating new articles or expanding existing ones, related to the Summer or Winter Olympics or Paralympics medalists. Articles must be at least 3000 bytes in size and have references. Pages whose content is based on lists or templates do not get points. The scoring system is as follows (do not forget to score points awarded by each article that you work on the section of participants):
  • +1 point for each 1,000 bytes of content added.
  • +1 point if the article is new.
  • +1 point if the article is about Paralympic athletes.
  • +1 point if the article is about women.
  • Who?: people interested in collaborating with Wikipedia and increase the Olympics-related content. It is only necessary to have an user account in advance. To participate you must register in the participants section.
  • Why?: The contest is organized by Wikimedia España: our goal is to provide all the free knowledge about the Olympic Games in all languages. If your organization or institution wants to collaborate with this contest, please, contact with us.
