Dear WLE organisers around the world,
I am planning to organise the WLE contest in TUNISIA this year. As a new
user in this community, I am seeking your help and support to ensure the
success of such an event.

In 2020, we had 34 participating countries organizing local contests, and
we hope to work with all of you again, along with new teams on WLE 2021. As
always, Wiki Loves Earth contest will take place *between May and
our positive experience of extending the contest until July the last year,
we have a flexible approach regarding your local dates this year. You are
free to decide when exactly to hold your contest within the international
timeframe or close to these months, for example, in April or July (other
months can be considered by the international organizing team, too, please
contact us with your suggestion). We advise to do it for no less than two
weeks and no more than two months.

Hello Anastasiia and WLE team,
Is there any information about WLE contest in 2021?
Currently, Wikimedia Indonesia has a monthly photo and infographic contest.
Every month has different topics. If there is WLE 2021, we want to
participate and put it in our monthly photo contest.
About the souvenir from WLE 2020, we have received it this week. Thank you
