Wiki Loves Earth is an annual international photographic competition held during the months of May or June, organised worldwide by the Wikipedia community members with the help of local Wikimedia affiliates across the globe. Participants take pictures of local natural heritage sites in their region and upload them to Wikimedia Commons. The aim of event is to highlight the natural heritage sites of the participating countries with the goal to encourage people to capture pictures of these sites and to put them under a free licence which can then be re-used not only in Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone.
This year, by organisation of Wikimedians of Cameroon User Group members, Cameroon is participating in the competition for the thirty time.
