The Jury

In July, you may upload pictures (old or new) as you want from the given monuments list that you have visited. After July 25th, the national jury will evaluate the photographs and select the best 10 pictures of the natural monuments in Tanzania to submit to represent in the international finale. If there are any doubts about the implementation of the rules, the jury decides.

Judging criteria

The jury will determine the winners of the international contest taking into the consideration the following criteria (in no particular order):

  • Technical quality (sharpness, use of light, perspective etc.);
  • Originality;
  • Usefulness of the image for Wikipedia.

Images that reach a top ranking of the international finale, will typically at least fulfill the technical criteria of the ‘Featured Image’ process at Wikimedia Commons. But feel free to submit images, and let the jury be concerned if they are good enough.

Edit-a-thon

Aside from contributing photographs on Wikimedia Commons, you may also improve existing Wikipedia articles by adding contributed Wiki Loves Earth photos.
