With a first prize of USD1,000 and prize pot of USD3400, Wiki Loves Africa 2021 photo contest is calling for Africa's photographers to enter images, audio and video under the theme Health + Wellness.

Enter a body of work that captures any aspect of Health + Wellness! The subject is totally up to you (you can get some ideas from here). Your photos can be in colour or black and white, can be landscape, portraiture, street photography or any other genre. Any capture method or process, whether digital or analog, including monochromatic toning, is welcome.

Entered images will be automatically added to Wikimedia Commons and could be used to illustrate articles on Wikipedia and its sister projects, thus changing how people think and feel about Africa, its people and its realities online.

It's as simple as 1,2,3:
Take photos!
Select the best! Please be aware that only images over 3mb and images without watermarks or identifying marks will be considered.
Register on Wikimedia Commons. You have to be registered on Wikimedia Commons to enter the competition. Make sure your email is enabled so that we can contact you if you are a winner!
Upload your photos! Remember to describe the photo and add relevant categories to the image. NOTE: to be eligible for national prizes select the country the image was taken in.
What now? Winners will be announced in June, but there are more photo competitions and additional ways to ensure that the true faces, cultures, realities and ideas of Africa are seen through Wikipedia.
