Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, celebrates its 6th birthday on Jan 15, also called Wikipedia Day. The website is a source of encyclopedic information, to which anyone can contribute, by adding new articles or improving existing ones.
On this day we would like to invite you, members of the devaintART community, to celebrate together with Wikipedians around the world, by doing what you do best - creating wonderful and inspiring works of art.
At the core of Wikipedia lies a dream. "Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge." This is part of Wikimedia Foundation's vision statement. Your mission is to show us what the world will look like when Wikipedia is actually "finished" (obviously it can never be completely finished but use your imagination)
open to all forms of art a seperate literature category will be opened
license: all works will have to be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution or Attribution-Share alike license (cannot be "non-commercial" and cannot be "no-derivatives") or any other license allowed on Wikimedia Commons (see [link] for details.
