Welcome to the WikiSnap Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to add an image and an infobox to all submissions that do not have one. The awards are awarded in the form of barnstars. The competition runs over a number of weeks until one competitor is left standing. Rounds are run in weeks at the end of the week the field is either halved or a victor is declared.

Rules and Structure[edit]

The rules are simple. You're in a pool of 4. You out-edit the other competitor to win. 1 point for adding an infobox and another for adding a photo. Top 2 editors progress. League process repeats until we are down to the final 4-7. No cheating.
