Wiki Loves Earth is an international photographic competition to promote natural heritage sites around the world through Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). Everybody can participate. There are a lot of natural heritage sites in all participating countries. The goal of Wiki Loves Earth is to encourage people to take pictures of those natural sites, and to put them under a free license so that others may access them through the Internet. This is the first time Ghana will be participating in the contest, to achieve this, an international contest will take place from 15 May — 15 June 2019. This page introduces the Ghanaian part of this competition. Join us to contribute free-licensed images of natural heritages in Ghana.
