Wiki Loves Africa is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute media that relate to that year’s theme to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wiki Loves Africa encourages participants to contribute media (photographs, video, and audio) that illustrate the specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes and is chosen by the community from universal, visually-rich and culturally-specific topics (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc).
The Wiki Loves Africa 2017 photographic competition has resulted in 18,294 image uploads to Commons around the theme People at Work.
My photography “Gift of the Ocean”, taken In Zanzibar, won the first prize!
