Project description
Wiki Eurovision Heart (Infobox).svg
The WikiProject Eurovision was called into existence on 13 September 2003. From that moment onwards, this project group has assembled Wikipedians who are dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to the Eurovision Network, and other topics similar to but not necessarily identical to the Eurovision event concept.

The main topics covered are the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC), Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC), Eurovision Dance Contest (EDC), Eurovision Young Dancers (EYD), Eurovision Young Musicians (EYM), OGAE contests (OC), Intervision Song Contest (ISC), ABU Song Festivals (ASF) and Türkvizyon Song Contest (TSC). The goal of this project is to create high quality articles and to maintain consistency in terms of layout and information.

If you feel that you can have a positive contribution to the project, become a member by joining the list of members. If you don't know what to write or where to begin, or if you have doubts or ideas on how to improve an article, please address the project's discussion forum.

Objective 1 – Contest by year and contest related pages
Objective 1 involves:
  • Creating a page for each year's contest
  • Improving/maintaining all the contest related pages in the project.
Guidelines on how to make the pages can be found on the sub-page.
Objective 2 – Contestants and songs
Objective 2 involves:
  • Creating a page for each contestant and song involved in the contest.
Guidelines on how to make the pages can be found on the sub-page.
Objective 3 – "Country" in the contest
Objective 3 involves:
  • Creating a page for each participating country in the contest. This will give information about a country's efforts and achievements in Eurovision.
Guidelines on how to make the pages can be found on the sub-page.
Objective 4 – "Country" in the contest "year"
Objective 4 involves:
  • Creating a page for each country participating in the contest each year. This will give information about the year in Eurovision for that country, like how the song was chosen (selection events), how well it did, any other information about its participation that year.
Guidelines on how to make the pages can be found on the sub-page.
Objective 5 – Sourcing
Objective 5 involves...SOURCING!!
  • On Wikipedia, it is very important not only to have the correct information, but to show where you got it from so it can be verified. Editor's should be finding additional sources to reference information with.
Objective 6 – Maintenance
Objective 6 involves:
  • Checking pages to make sure things are consistent across the board and correcting any errors. A listing of pages marked for some sort of cleanup is available here.
Objective 7 – Assessment
Objective 7 involves:
  • Assessing project pages. The first thing to do to assess an article is to add {{WikiProject Eurovision|class=|importance=}}, the project banner, to the talk page of an article if it does not have one. If an article already has a banner, you should assess the article using the assessment scale. Assessing articles gives us a good idea about the quality of the articles in our project and can help identify short comings.
