Wikipedia Asian Month is an online article contest on Wikipedia focused on promotion of Asian content in different language Wikipedia. Each participating community runs a month-long online edit-a-thon every November at their local language Wikipedia to create new content about Asia except their home country. Participation is not limited to Asian communities.
The first iteration of this competition began in 2015 and each year, the article counts and participating communities have diversified and expanded. In the past three years, over 27142 high quality articles have been added in more than 63 language Wikipedia by more than 2767 Wikipedia editors. 2019 will soon be added, when the contest is finished.
As a part of friendship and culture exchange of Wikipedia Asian Community, participants who create at least four articles receive a special Wikipedia Postcard from another participating community and the highest contributor from each local Wikipedia gets the honor of Wikipedia Asian Month ambassador.
Get ready to do an Asian journey in the month of November and receive postcards from different Asian countries!
