AFW London Teams Up With Wikipedia For Wiki Loves Africa 2015!

Wiki Loves Africa is a competition to share on Wikipedia the daily practices of people across the continent with each other and the rest of the world.

Of all of the millions of subjects you can read about on Wikipedia, subjects relating to Africa have the least coverage. This is because of a number of reasons, but mostly because many people do not know that they can donate their images, videos and audio.

This year, Africa fashion week London partners with wiki for the Wiki Loves Africa Cultural Fashion and Adornment Competition. AFWL will give away a free spot to any of the winners who is a designer to showcase at the 2016 edition of Africa Fashion Week.

The theme for the 2015 photo contest will be Wiki Loves Africa Cultural Fashion and Adornment. The competition scope will be: submissions of media that cover cultural dress and fashion; specifically fashion that is defined by local cultural influences and determines cloth, styles, ways of wrapping and hanging, etc. This theme would include adornment that include culturally defined jewelry, make-up, hairstyles, cloths and woven materials.
