Tenth Anniversary Contest
Wikisource 10.svg
Wikisource was created in November 2003. November 2013 is the tenth anniversary of the project.


To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Wikisource project, various Wikisources are organising a proofreading contest.

On English Wikisource, we have chosen a short selection of ten assorted texts to be proofread (ten works for ten years). Each page proofread will win points for the proofreader, as described below. Every page helps and it is not necessary to complete any text within the contest, just to add to the work done in making these available to all.

This is open to experienced Wikisourcers and new volunteers who want to give the project a try.

Wikimedia UK have offered to award prizes for the winners of the contest (which is open to all regardless of nationality or location). The user with the highest score at the end of the contest will win a Kobo e-reader. There will also be two runners up: the users with the highest score in the first week and the highest score in the second week will each win a £10 (GBP) Amazon voucher.
