Hi,

As part of the program for Supporting Indian language Wikipedias, we are
glad to announce an article writing contest to address the content gap that
exists online. This contest has a special focus to create articles that are
most sought out by users online but not yet present in Indian language
Wikipedias.

* Each month three individual prizes will be awarded to each participating
community based on their contribution for the month. The prizes will be
worth 3,000 INR, 2000 INR, and 1,000 INR respectively.

* At the end of the three-month-long contest, the community with the
maximum number of articles expanded or created will win a community prize.
This will be an exclusive 3-day capacity training event for the winning
community.

To learn more and coordinate the contest on behalf of your community,
