*Wiki Loves Uniformed services (India)* (WLUS) is a public photo
competition on Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project
websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. With the inspiration drawn from Wiki
Loves Monuments (WLM) and Wiki Loves Food (WLF), this is the first
iteration of its kind in 2017. For this year, the predominant aim of the
project is the improve the quality of images of different uniformed
services operating from the Indian sub-continental region.
Apart from the primary goal as mentioned above, the project also aims to
educate people about and promote donating images to Commons on a national
scale from the vibrant Indian photography community. Through this campaign,
more people will access and contribute to Wikipedia and its sister projects.
