WLE on Wikimania

During the Wikimania annual conference, an audience could attend and listen to a session called “Wiki Loves Earth — 10 years of experience” by Olesia Lukaniuk, Project Manager of the contest.🌳

During the speech, there was an opportunity to share with the listeners a summary of the results of the international photo contest “Wiki Loves Earth” for 10 years of its existence. And also inform about the current state of the competition and important updates.

Some of the local teams also shared their perspective and experience in organizing the competition in a video.

After the session, all in-person attendees had the opportunity to receive WLE-branded souvenirs. We are grateful for this opportunity to spread awareness about Wiki Loves Earth with the international community and engage more people to contribute to a natural heritage!💚

You can watch the recorded session here with a timecode 1:20:30👉…

Wiki Loves Earth 2023 is announcing the special nomination “Human rights and environment”!🌍

In 2023, Wiki Loves Earth international photo contest again supports the initiative WikiForHumanRights, which partners with the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Its goal is to raise awareness of nature protection and human impacts on nature.

When we protect the environment, we also protect the fundamental human rights we all have — rights to water, life, food, housing, and other fundamental rights that rely on a clean, healthy environment. And this year, we accept photos not only from the countries where the main contest is going but also from the whole world!

Technically, participants would be able to upload images through the “wle-special” campaign.

Check out this page for more detailed information such as criteria for images, examples of images, important notes, how to upload, etc: 👉…/Human_rights_and….
