Wiki Loves Earth 2024 in Slovakia

Wiki Loves Earth is an international photographic competition with the goal of promoting natural heritage. Almost a quarter (23.25%) of Slovakia's land area is protected. There are over a thousand protected areas and monuments and many of them do not have a photo on Commons yet. The competition is for pictures uploaded between 15 June and 31 July 2024. They can be taken before the competition too. There will be a jury to evaluate the best photos. Please use the special upload campaign for Wiki Loves Earth, otherwise make sure to include the template {{Wiki Loves Earth 2024|sk}} on your uploads. Make sure they have geolocation coordinates and an ID from the list. You can also read more about the international competition on its website.
