How would it be if Wikipedia articles had no images?

How would it be if you could add images to Wikipedia using available tools?

How would it be if you could win prizes for that?

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos for Hausa community is an annual campaign where Wikipedians from Hausa community add photos to wikimedia project pages without images. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various photography contests, organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages.
