*Wiki Loves Earth* (*WLE*) is an annual international photographic
competition held during the month of May, organised worldwide by theWikipedia
community members <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedians> with the help
of local Wikimedia affiliates across the globe. Participants take pictures
of local natural heritage and scenic landscape in their countries, and
upload them on Wikimedia Commons
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Commons>. The aim of the event is
to highlight the conservation areas
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservation_area> of the participating
countries with the goal to encourage people to capture pictures of these
sights, and to put them under a free license which can then be re-used not
only in Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone across different domains.
India participated in such a photography contest for the first time in
2014. The winners could be found here
year WMIN is participating again and we need your support.
Do you have pictures of protected areas of India
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protected_areas_of_India>, or from your
recent trip to any national park
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_national_parks_of_India> on your
computer? This is a great opportunity to give them a second life in this
Wiki Loves Earth contest. In addition to being seen by everyone, your
pictures could be included in Wikipedia and contribute to the
knowledge of India’s
natural beauty <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protected_area>. Freely
licensed photos collected through Wikipedia Loves Earth may also be reused
elsewhere than in Wikipedia.
You can upload photos that may have been taken by you at any time. The key
criteria to be eligible for the contest are that they are to be uploaded to
Wikimedia Commons during June 2016.
