Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) is an annual campaign where Wikipedia editors across world, Wikipedia language projects and communities add photos to Wikipedia articles lacking photos. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various Wikimedia photography contests, photowalks organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages. Photos help to grasp the reader's attention better than a wall of text, illustrate content, and make the article more instructive and engaging for readers.
Thousands of images have been donated and contributed to Wikimedia Commons via various advocacy programs, photowalks, and contests including international photography contests such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc. Yet relatively few of these photos have been used on Wikipedia articles. Today, the Wikimedia Commons hosts millions of photo images but only a tiny portion of these have been used on Wikipedia article pages. This is a huge gap that this project aims at bridging.

Before participating, it is important to read the participation instructions and rules below in their entirety. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
- Sign in if you are already registered on any Wikimedia project or Create a new account on Wikipedia (you can create your account on any language Wikipedia including your own language). The list of Wikipedias in all languages can be found here.
- Find an article that needs a photo. There are many ways to do this. Here are some tips.
- Find an appropriate image on Commons. Search for the image using the correct title or category. There are several ways to do this. See this simple media reuse guide. Here are additional tips. Please note that the purpose of an image is to increase readers' understanding of the article's subject matter, usually by directly depicting people, things, activities, and concepts described in the article. The relevant aspect of the image should be clear and central. The images must be significant and relevant in the topic's context, not primarily decorative.
- On the article page, find a section where the image is relevant and helps the reader understand the subject. Click Edit and insert the image, and include a brief caption explaining what the image depicts in the article. Use the best quality images available. Poor-quality images—dark or blurry; showing the subject too small, hidden in clutter, or ambiguous; and so on—should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Think carefully about which images best illustrate the subject matter. You MUST provide an edit summary for all your edits, "Preview" and make any necessary changes. Include the hashtag #WPWP in the edit summary of all articles improved with images. Then click on "Publish changes".
- Please be mindful of the image syntax! If you are going to add images to the infoboxes in articles, the syntax is a lot easier — just the filename, so rather than
[[File:Obamas at church on Inauguration Day 2013.jpg|thumb|The Obamas worship at [[African Methodist Episcopal Church]] in Washington, D.C., January 2013]]simply type
The Obamas at church on Inauguration Day 2013.jpg.
Basic example (producing the image at right):
[[File:Siberian Husky pho.jpg|thumb|alt=A white dog in a harness playfully nuzzles a young boy |A Siberian Husky used as a pack animal]]
File:Siberian Husky pho.jpgThe file (image) name must be exact (including capitalization, punctuation and spacing) and must include
.pngor other extension. (
File:work the same.) If Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons both have an image with the specified name, the Wikipedia version is the one that will appear in the article.
thumbis required in most cases
alt=A white dog in a harness playfully nuzzles a young boyAlt text is meant for those who cannot see the image; unlike the caption, it summarizes the image's appearance. It should comport with accessibility guidelines and should name famous events, people and things.
A Siberian Husky used as a pack animalThe caption comes last, and gives the meaning or significance of the image.
