Wikipedia Asian Month has started!
WAM is an annual Wikipedia contest focused on the promotion of Asian
content on various language-specific Wikipedias. Each participating
community runs a month-long (November 2011) online edit-a-thon every
November on their language's Wikipedia to create new content or improve
existing articles about Asian topics apart from their own country.
Individuals or groups who made exemplary work in this global campaign will
be sent with postcards from the organisers!

more how to participate or how your community organise a contest in your
local language Wikipedia!
