For all participating countries there are separate competitions organized by local teams, so periods, rules, prizes, etc. might differ a bit. To take part in the international part of the Wiki Loves Earth contest, a submission should:
- Be self-taken;
All entries must be original photographs uploaded by their authors. Photos uploaded by anyone else than the author (even with permission) are not accepted.
- Be self-uploaded during the contest period (May-July 2022);
You are also welcome to submit photos you may have taken in the past. What matters is that photos must be uploaded during the contest period (in May-July 2022, exact dates listed on the contest page)
- Be under a free license;
- Contain an identified natural monument / natural park / protected area etc.;
Lists of eligible sites are published by each participating country. Photos of representative species (animals, plants, etc.) taken in an eligible site also qualify if they are properly identified;
Photos should include coordinates.
- Be nominated through a national contest;
- Have at least 2Mpx;
Photos under 2Mpx can be accepted in local contests, but should such a photo be nominated for the international partб the author will have to upload the photo in a higher resolution, or the photo will be disqualified.
A participant should have an activated e-mail address via Preferences of their account.
The rules can be adapted via the international team if needed.
