I want to organize #WPWP[edit]

Do you want to organize a #WPWP campaign in your geographic, thematic, or language community?

WPWP aims at bridging the content gap by using images collected as part of various annual thematic contests and photowalks organized in recent years. It can be used by communities to recruit new members, as only a few steps are required to add photos to Wikipedia articles. One benefit of organizing WPWP is to guide newcomers through the editing process while focusing on meaningful content.

Don't forget to use the hashtag #WPWP in the Edit summary! Note that you MUST provide an edit summary for all your edits
