Uploading to Wikimedia CommonsEdit

We encourage you to upload images from your events to Wikimedia Commons so all the language Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects can use them.

  • Images for this year's events will go into the Commons category: ArtAndFeminism 2020 on Wikimedia Commons. Each event will have its own subcategory. If your event does not yet have a category on Commons, create one before uploading images to Commons. You can create a category by typing in the Search Bar: "Category:ArtAndFeminism 2020/YOUR EVENT LOCATION". Then you must create the category by typing in a few words in the page to describe what the category is, and pressing save. Once you've created the category, you should be able to tag images you upload with this category. You can also put your category into the category: Commons:Category:ArtAndFeminism_2020 by adding: [[Category:ArtAndFeminism_2020]] at the bottom of your category.
