Wiki Loves Earth (WLE) is an annual international photographic competition held during the month of May, organized 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.
The aim of the event is to highlight the conservation areas 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. This year Bangladesh is also participating this competition and this page introduces the Bangladeshi part of this competition. The local competition is being supported & organized by Wikimedia Bangladesh with the help of Bangla Wikipedia community members.
