Wiki Loves Africa 2019 on the theme PLAY

WikiMedia Commons mailing list
Hello everyone,

We are proud to announce the launch of the 5th Wiki Loves Africa photographic contest, on the 1st of February 2019.

This year, the theme of the contest will be PLAY.

The theme Play! encourages the submission of visual representations of joyful and serious games, sport, and recreation in the form of board or mental games, physical fun or contests, playful interactions, theatrical and musical performances, etc. It is intentionally broad and open to interpretation. Play is a range of voluntary, intrinsically motivated activities done for recreational pleasure and enjoyment. 

As with last year, there will be two separate prize categories for photos and media that encompass:

As its name might make it obvious... this is about Africa. But diaspora and interested people from everywhere around the world are welcome to participate... as long as it is related to Africa :)

Compared to previous years, the contest will be shorter this year (one month instead of two). But we expect no less success !
If you want to help (photo cleanup, relaying messages, translations etc.), please contact us or simply jump in.

For your general interest, some stats may be found here :

There is a rather active Facebook page (for the public) and Facebook group (for organizers) :
