Welcome to the Wikidata Challenge around items on menus!

What: This is a public competition built around circa 30 menus that are used at a food festival (Q1435951) in Stockholm (Q1754). The goal of this challenge is to improve and translate and illustrate this list of around 300 menu items, into as many languages as possible. They will be displayed on menus during the food festival. The winners will receive great prizes and honour.

How: The contest is simple in structure, based on a KISS point system: You get points while adding labels, images and pronunciations, with the goal for each participant to gain as many points as possible.

Who: Everybody can help in any language with translating or by adding pronunciations or images of the food and the ingredients. Anyone with an account can participate. To participate you just need to sign up on the Participants section.

Why: The contest is organized and led by Wikimedia Sweden (Q15279144): We want to try out the power of Wikidata in Sweden as we believe that Wikidata could be a fantastic tool to make the city as easily accessible for tourists and immigrants as possible! At the food festival we will reach a lot of people and increase Wikidata’s visibility and gather their comments and ideas. We will use the lessons learned and continue with other Wikidata projects to create useful products for different partners! Help us make this a success!
