30 fascinating pictures from the winners of Wiki Loves Earth contest

To take part in this contest, photographers from 37 countries of the world took mesmerizing pictures of their local natural heritage. Let's see these amazing photographs of unique nature's moments.


Wiki Loves Earth is organized every year by the Wikipedia community members to highlight the conservation areas of many counties of the world.

The project started in 2013 in Ukraine and became international in 2014. By 2015, the contest has seen participants from 26 countries. The last competition held in 2019 united talented photographers from as many as 37 countries.

Participants put their beautiful works under a free license, which means they can be legally re-used not only in Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone.

The pictures you are going to see today were winners in different years. Enjoy!

Wiki Loves Earth is held every year throughout May and June.


Which of these pictures did you like the most? Would you like to take part in this contest? A picture of which place would you send? Will you be waiting for the next Wiki Loves Earth event?

All of the photos were amazing and some were even "Jaw Dropping". Was wondering if only a few countries were picked to enter this contest or was it world wide?
