Wiki Loves Africa is the annual continent-wide competition that shifts the visual narrative of Africa by encouraging people to contribute Africa-relevant photos, video, or audio to Wikimedia Commons. The 2022 theme was Home&Habitat, and judging by the 16,265 entries received, it spoke to creative minds across Africa and beyond.
The Wiki in Africa ISA campaign, which centres around adding metadata to the images uploaded in the 2022 Wiki Loves Africa competition, aims to address this issue. Our award-winning ISA tool makes adding descriptors to images easy and seamless.
However, in the past, we've noticed some issues with the way people describe images. In response, we've written a Depiction Guideline article to guide people when adding structured data to Wikidata here.
The richness, diversity, and beauty of Africa deserve to be visually celebrated on Wikipedia. YOU can help to do this by describing images for the ISA campaign. Everyone is welcome to participate! Join the campaign here!
