Wiki Loves Africa (WLA) is an annual contest where anyone across Africa can contribute media that is relevant to their experience to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wiki Loves Africa encourages participants to contribute media (photographs, video and audio) that illustrate the specific theme for that year. Each year the theme changes and is chosen by the community from a few universal, visually rich and culturally specific topics (for example, markets, rites of passage, festivals, public art, cuisine, natural history, urbanity, daily life, notable persons, etc).

The theme for the 2014 photo contest was Wiki Loves Africa Cuisine. In 2015 the theme focused on Wiki Loves Africa Cultural Fashion and Adornment. In 2016, the chosen theme was Music and Dance.

In 2017, the theme is... People at Work
Competition scope: The theme calls for photographs, videos and audio files that document all manner of occupations undertake across the continent - formal and informal, contemporary and ancient, business-oriented and creative. There will be a special prize that will be concentrated on visually capturing women working, and another that illustrates rare, fading or threatened traditional craft, style or way of working.

The project is a two-month competition which will start on the 1st of October and end on the 30th of November 2017.
The project will be run at the entire continental level. However, some specific actions (training, communication etc.) will be held in some countries with national organisers. The project will feature a contest to select the best media at the continental level, with a ceremony and prizes as deemed appropriate.
