About Wiki Loves Folklore International Photographic Contest

Wiki Loves Folklore is an international photo contest which aims at documenting culture and heritage of different parts of the world. Wiki Loves Folklore is a continuation of Commons:Wiki Loves Love 2019 project with the theme of folk culture. The contest will run from 1 February until 28 February 2021.

 

The basic aim of the competition is to collect photos of cultural heritage to illustrate articles in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. The photos provided must match the theme, although the contest is not limited to any official list of protected areas, which means that most users will be able to find several pertaining subjects close to the theme emphasizing on folk culture of that area. Last year our theme was festivals, rituals, and ceremonies to document the cultural heritage. This year we are back with folklore heritage. There have been contests organized in different regions locally on the national levels, such as Wiki Loves Culture, Wiki Loves Festivals, Wiki Loves Folk, Wiki Loves Heritage for documenting culture.

 

Our cultural photo contest brings opportunities to photographers around the globe to document culture around different parts of the world.

 

In 2019, 120+ countries participated and we hope that this year we can bring together cultural heritage from different parts of the world, including, underrepresented regions without organized affiliates.

 

The project will be run on an international level. However, some specific actions (promotional events, communication, etc.) will be held in some countries with participating affiliates in their regions. You can also organize the contest independently in your country/region on behalf of your organization/affiliate, please reach out to our international team or email us at wikiloveslove@gmail.com for more information regarding the local-level organizing.

 

Photos must be uploaded within the stipulated time period from 1st February to 28th February.
