Wikipedia Asian Month[edit]

Wikipedia Asian Month was created and developed, and is managed by the principals at Wikipedia Asian Month User Group, it is the official user group. The project will run across different language Wikipedia. Actions in each country are supported by the Wikimedia community in the form of Chapters, User groups and volunteers. The project is a on-month contest which will start on November 1st, UTC 00:00 to November 30, UTC 23:59, 2020. In the previous years, the contest lasted 1 months.

Wikipedia Asian Month promotes its participants to create content about Asian topics. However, there are partners that have volunteered to host specific actions (subcontest, upload events, communications, etc.) on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. Since 2015, each participating local community runs an online Edit-a-thon every November, which promotes the creation or improvement of the Wikipedia content about Asia except their own country. The participating community is not limited to Asia.

As part of the friendship and cultural exchange of the Wikipedia Asian Community, participants who create at least four articles will receive a special Wikipedia Asian Month Postcard from another participating community after the contest closes. Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors". Where there are local partners, they can decide to organise (or not) judging and local prizes for their communities at their discretion.
