Wiki-Editing Contest

Biophysics Wiki-Edit Contest

Members were encouraged to share what they know about biophysics with the world by participating in the Society's Wiki-Edit Contest. The 2013 contest kicked off at the 57th Annual Meeting and ended on July 15., Attendees at the kick off event received a button with the image on the left. 

Six winners, chosen by a panel of judges who will determine the most improved biophysics-related articles, image collections or other contributions to Wikipedia or Commons, will receive $100 each, a barnstar on their talk page, and free registration to the 2014 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California. 

Visit the WikiProject Biophysics page for more information about the WikiProject. Visit the Biophysics Wiki-Edit Contest page or search WP:BIOPHYS on Wikipedia or Google for information on how to enter the contest. 

For helpful tips and tricks for creating a Wikipedia account, adding and editing pages, and more, view the slides presented at the BPS Annual Meeting Wiki-Editing Contest Meet-Up! 

The deadline was July 15, 2013 to participate in the contest.  You are still encouraged to add to biophysics knowledge on wiki even though the contest is over.

Check back in the fall to see the winners of the inaugural contest.


This contest is sponsored by WikiProject Biophysics, as well as the Biophysical Society's Education and Early Careers Committees.
