Commons:Wiki Loves Earth 2017 in Moldova
Wiki Loves Earth is a photography contest in which the participants upload images of nature monuments at Wikimedia Commons, so that they can be subsequently used in Wikipedia's articles. The first edition took place in 2013 and was organized by Wikimedia Ukraine. The contest became international in 2014.
Moldova joined in 2016. The local contest is held between May 15–June 15, 2017, and is organized with the generous assistance of Wikimedia Ukraine, as well as the "Hai Moldova" and "MEGA Generation" communities (see list of organizers).
The goal of Wiki Loves Earth Moldova contest is to gather as much quality images as possible featuring nature monuments of Moldova.
