Hello all,

The Wikidata and Wikibase ecosystem is a huge galaxy of exciting content, tools, projects, powered by the communities as well as organisations working with the software and the data. For seven years, people are gathering, starting projects, developing tools, improving the editors' workflows, filling various gaps, working all together to give more people more access to more knowledge.

The WikidataCon Award 2019 will reward the greatest projects in a variety of categories. The awarded projects are selected by the WikidataCon Award committee, based on nominations by the community. Everyone is invited to participate and nominate one or several projects. The nomination process is open until October 7th.

What we mean by project: a project can be a community gathering or other initiative that led to great results (WikiProject, event, editathon…), a tool (gadget, script, external tool…) or any other action that led to improving Wikidata’s data, the workflow of its editors or the outreach.
