Hi! As Wiki Loves Earth is running smoothly in a couple of dozens countries across the globe, I am pleased to announce some updates related to the contest.

1) Today, the contest has started in four countries: Taiwan, Ghana, Algeria, and Russia. Additionally, a dozen or so countries will start Wiki Loves Earth in June.
The landing pages for these and other countries can be found at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2019/Participating_countries.
So far, Wiki Loves Earth participants from across the world have uploaded almost 25,000 photos in two weeks.

2) The international Wiki Loves Earth site has a new blog post on how to make Wiki Loves Earth photos more visible on Wikipedia. Check it out — http://wikilovesearth.org/illustrating-wikipedia/.

3) The international team has started regularly picking some beautiful photos specifically for Wiki Loves Earth Instagram account. Subscribe at  https://www.instagram.com/wikilovesearth/.
We would be glad to receive suggestions on which photos should be featured there. Email me personally or the international team at wle-team@wikimedia.org.ua

Best Regards
