We encourage each and everyone of you to create a program submission. You can submit an interactive workshop or panel, a lecture, a short lighting talk or a poster for our dedicated poster session. Submissions are catered to both onsite and online (live or pre-recorded) or a hybrid combination. We at the Core Organizing Team would like to see a program submission related to community initiatives such as Wiki Loves Earth.
The theme for this year's Wikimania is Diversity, Collaboration, Future. Topics that strengthen collaboration on online campaigns and initiatives are topics we like to see this year. There are also photography outreach (photo walks, teaching participants on Nature Photography). Singapore is one of a few countries where nature reserves and parks are at close proximity. It is great way to collaborate with each other. There is also a spacious Wikimania Expo space where achievements on Commons like Wiki Loves campaigns can be exhibited.
For participants joining virtually, we also have allocated online hours for you too to allow you to participate & present.
Session submissions for Wikimania 2023 are open until 28 March.

Awards for your winners.
The rules of the international contest are mostly the same as the previous
year, but we made one minor change — on the international level no more
than two photos from one author will be selected in the top 20. As our goal
is to diversify the winning images and showcase more natural monuments from
various regions and authors, this year we put this limit.
