Every contest has rules! Make sure you follow these ones, and your entries will not be disqualified or wasted …

The rules for Wiki Loves Africa are … 

  • Media can only be self-uploaded or uploaded during a registered mass upload session by the person who took that image.
  • Media can only be entered during the competition period. The media can have been created at any time; e.g. historic photographs can be entered as long as you own the copyright.
  • All entries will have to have the following licence: Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 4.0 (CC-BY-SA 4.0).
  • All eligible pictures must be categorised under Wiki Loves Africa 2017. This is assigned during the upload process.
  • Any entries with watermarks or signatures embedded on the image or file will be disqualified.
  • Participants must register on Wikimedia Commons, and enable e-mail, to be eligible for prizes.

Please note: the dates for 2018 competition will only be announced in mid-2018. Please watch the social media channels for news.
