Wikipedia Asian Month 2020
Wikipedia Asian Month Logo.svg

Wikipedia Asian Month is an annual Wikipedia contest focused on the promotion of Asian content on various language-specific Wikipedias. Each participating community runs a month-long online edit-a-thon every November on their language's Wikipedia to create new content or improve existing articles about Asian topics apart from their own country. Participation is not limited to Asian communities.

The first iteration of this competition began in 2015 and each year the number of articles has increased and the participants have diversified and expanded. In the past five years, over 37,500 high-quality articles have been added in more than 60 language-specific Wikipedias by more than 2,900 Wikipedia editors.

As part of the friendship and cultural exchange of the Wikipedia Asian Community, participants who create at least four articles will receive a special Wikipedia Postcard from another participating community.

Get ready to be surprised! You never know which Wiki community will be sending you postcards! Wikipedians who create the most articles on each Wikipedia will be honored as "Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors".
