The Jury

On July 15th, you may upload pictures (old or new) as you want from the given monuments list that you have visited. After August 15, the national jury will evaluate the photographs and select the best top 10 pictures of the natural monuments and top 3 winners in Tanzania. 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.


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