Wiki Loves Earth

Wiki Loves Earth (WLE) is an annual international photographic competition held throughout May and June, organised worldwide by Wikimedia chapters, groups and local Wikipedia volunteers. Participants take pictures of local natural heritage and scenic landscape in their countries and upload them to Wikimedia Commons to better illustrate articles in Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects.

Wikimedia Australia took part in Wiki Loves Earth between 2016-2019, 2021-2022, and our contributors uploaded over 9,000 photos. Read more about our participation in Wiki Loves Earth here.
