Join Wiki Loves Earth 2019!

On May 1, Wiki Loves Earth starts its sixth year of crowdsourcing photos of natural monuments and provides a chance to win local and international prizes. It has grown to become a truly global and large-scale photo contest, helping attract half a million free photos of natural monuments and protected areas from more than 50 countries.

Wiki Loves Earth is a photo competition which calls for participants to picture nature protected areas and upload their photos to Wikimedia Commons. Photos are uploaded under a free license that enables their free worldwide use on Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, and any other project. The previous five contests gathered more than 500,000 photos, and we hope that Wiki Loves Earth 2019 will show even better results.

Wiki Loves Earth is organised through numerous national contests coordinated by local volunteers around the globe. By now 23 countries are on the participating countries list, and we expect more local teams to join. Participants of the contest will compete for international prizes; local teams might also offer their awards.

To participate in the contest, sign up on Wikimedia Commons, find an item or place you are familiar with from the competition list, and upload them to Commons.

You can check whether your country participates in Wiki Loves Earth this year and find more information about it on the Wikimedia Commons page. Rules of the contest are also available on Commons.
