Africa Wiki Challenge 2024

The Africa Wiki Challenge is an online initiative focused on creating African-related content on Wikipedia. The annual competition strives to enhance information about Africa on Wikipedia and its sister projects

Often, African-related articles on Wikipedia are either stubs or lack videos or photos to provide visual context and enhance credibility. This inadvertently diminishes interest in reading existing African-related articles on Wikipedia. It's evident that both Ghana and Africa as a whole face a notable deficiency, particularly in terms of content representation on Wikipedia.

This year marks another exciting chapter in our journey to amplify Africa in the online information space. As we embrace the digital age, the fourth edition of the contest invites participants from across the continent to join us in this initiative to expand and enrich the representation of Africa and African-related content across the World Wide Web, especially on Wikipedia.

From bustling cities to remote villages, Africa possesses a wealth of knowledge and experiences waiting to be shared with the world. Happening from May 25th to June 30th, 2024.
