I suspect that for veteran Wikipedians, this message and encouragement is
not needed, but for new contributors it may help. However, they would
require a bit more guidance. If I were a new contributor, and saw such a
message, I would have a few different questions:
- How do I find 'relevant articles and lists'
- How do I physically add photos
- How do I know if it is appropriate to add my own photo (e.g. if there's

Wiki Loves Earth contest is aimed at creating the biggest database of free
photos of protected natural sites. WLE photos help to illustrate wiki
projects, but still, many articles are lacking such images.
How to improve this process? One of ways is encouraging participants that
have uploaded their photos to add them to the relevant articles and lists.
To do that, we have changed the text in the Upload campaign template to the
"call to action". Please, take a look at the *English version*
And we need exactly your help to translate this message into your
language(s). Please, check the list of templates *here
to illustrate Wikipedia!
