There are a number of Wikimedia initiatives launched throughout the year related to photography. The themes vary, but there is always the possibility of winning prizes in exchange for your photos.
In May the contest is called Loves Earth Wiki, is dedicated to protected natural spaces and runs in several countries, including Portugal. Participants can submit their photos until May 31, with no limit of images.
The Loves Earth Wiki was first organized in 2013 in Ukraine, where 365 photographers competed with more than 11,000 images. In the 2014 edition the competition was extended to 16 countries around the world, achieving an additional 170,000 photographs of 3,000 participants.
Portugal debuted in 2015 among 25 countries. The last edition, in 2018, covered 32 countries with a total of 89,000 participant images.
The competition has two stages, one at a national level with a national jury and local awards, and a second international stage, in which the 10 best photographs from each participating country compete to elect the best of 2019 from around the world .
