New Territories in modern context (in green)

New Territories was a part of Hong Kong comprised of the land between the current Boundary Street and Sham Chun River, as well as the outlying islands. China leased it to Britain since 1st July 1898, and it joined the previous British possessions of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in April 1899 after a clash between the indigenous people and the British. At first, most of it is either rural or mountainous areas. But over 70 years, transport facilities like Kowloon-Canton Railway and Castle Peak Road came into existence, and economic developments started to take place. During the last 30 years of the lease, it saw rapid growth when the government developed nine new towns and compliment infrastructures to accommodate the population growth. It is transferred to China on 1st July 1997 along with other parts of Hong Kong. Now parts of the territory are absorbed into Kowloon, and other parts have become residential areas or even hubs for the creative industry.

To commemorate the 120th anniversary of the New Territories' development, the Wikimedia Community User Group Hong Kong is inviting Wikipedia Asian Month participants to write articles about the New Territories. Those who wrote the most articles about the New Territories on one of the Wikipedia versions except English, Chinese and Cantonese ones - unless being eligible for more than one - and finishes the event will receive gifts from the user group.

  • Gifts are key chains with a plate using typefaces on minibus display boards and postcards - same as the ones sent by the User Group to other eligible WAM participants this year.

    On hold. I have written down that articles submitted have to fulfill criteria of the Asian Month (one of which is the submission have to be a new article), but myself have already broken one of the tenets. I will consult with other mambers. (Personally I thought that expansion is acceptable, when I have championed for years that expansions should be allowed for the Asian Month.)--Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse | Contributions ) 08:10, 22 December 2018 (UTC)
    You have written down it must follow the rules of the Asian Month at the concrete language version (”on your language project“). de:wp accepts translations (see de:WP:Asiatischer Monat/Teilnehmer on imported articles.) :-) --Stefan »Στέφανος«  01:06, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
