The Bacon WikiCup is a bacon-themed variation of the regular Wikipedia WikiCup. It was created by 2009 Wikipedian Sky Attacker (known at the time as The Legendary Sky Attacker) as a component of an annual "Bacon Challenge" amongst several Wikipedians to add bacon-related content to Wikipedia. The Bacon WikiCup traditionally ends on the first day of March, National Pig Day.
The first season of the Bacon WikiCup was contested from December 2009 - March 2010. Fourteen participants contributed content. The event was started and co-organized by Sky Attacker in December 2009, and then by SuperHamster for the rest of the event. The overall winner was Spinningspark.
The original season saw the creation of over forty new bacon-related articles, the uploading of more than sixty new bacon-related images, and the significant improvement of many more existing bacon-related articles. Several articles appeared on Wikipedia's main page in the "Did you know...?" section during and after the event's duration and other notable content such as a Wikipedia bacon article template and categories for bacon drinks and books about bacon were also introduced to the encyclopedia.
