The international team is pleased to announce *Wiki Loves Earth 2020* — the
7th edition of Wiki Loves Earth international photo contest. As always, it
will take place throughout May and June.
This letter is a brief update for potential local organizers of WLE 2020.
(Just a quick reminder: Wiki Loves Earth is a federative contest which is
coordinated by an international team but organized in each country by a
dedicated local team, typically consisting of volunteers).
The international team will be providing more information about Wiki Loves
Earth 2020 within the following weeks, but, overall, *the structure of the
contest has not changed*. If you are familiar with the process, you can
start adding your country to
If you have not organized Wiki Loves Earth in your country before but are
looking to organize one, please check our *guide for local organizers* (
and/or email us at wle-team(a)wikimedia.org.ua
An important thing which you should start thinking about now is *financing
your contest*. If your organization does not have an annual budget with
Wiki Loves Earth included, you might want to *apply for a rapid grant from
the Wikimedia Foundation* to cover for the expenses of Wiki Loves Earth in
your country (up to 2,000 USD).
In 2020, proposals for Wiki Loves Earth are accepted *between March 1st and
March 15th*; it is strongly advised you submit one within this timeframe
(though you can and should start planning it earlier).

We will try and provide more detailed instructions about preparing your
grant application in February.
*If you have any questions or need assistance, we would be glad to help*!
Please email us at wle-team(a)wikimedia.org.ua
P.S. We sent out a feedback form to all local organizers of Wiki Loves
Earth 2019. If you have not received a letter from us, please contact us so
we can resend it :)
