Wiki Loves Folklore

Wiki Loves Folklore is an international photographic contest organized by Wikimedia community to document cultures in different regions of the world.

In Ireland, we are calling on people to drive into their photo archives or visit local sites with connections of Irish culture, folklore or storytelling and upload them to Ireland's first Wiki Loves Folklore!

The basic aim of the competition is to collect photos of human cultural diversity to illustrate articles in the worldwide free encyclopaedia Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. The photos provided must match the theme, inlcuding, but not limited to festivals, material culture, dances, cuisine, clothing or daily life routine emphasizing on folk culture of the island of Ireland.

  • 1 February 2021 - 28 February 2021
  • Deadline for submissions: February 28, 2021 23:59 UTC.

There is also a writing competition running throughout February and March on Vicipéid - An Feimineachas agus an Béaloideas!

2020 winners!




Prizes and Certification will be awarded to the three best photographs. The prizes can be in Amazon or Irish National Book Tokens.
