Project GoalEdit

  1. Add more photos of natural reserves in P.R.C
  2. Engage existing editors

Project PlanEdit


1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?

We will specifically focus on the natural reserves in Mainland China. The photo in this field is rare on Wikimedia Commons. With more quality photos, awareness for these natural reserves can be raised to the global audience.

Engaging with the community is a key target in this event. We wish to have more Wikipedians being engaged in this kind of global event thus improve the community health. It may also help the community recruiting new contributors.

2. How will you let people know about the contest?

The Central Notice is our primary tool of publicity. We will try to reach out media (online and local) to spread the message and will encourage people to share our landing page.

3. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

We will use jury tools provided by WLE. We are expecting at least one professional photographer and one experienced Wikipedian served in our jury. Regarding the prize, we will simply follow the WLE's rules.

4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?

The list of available sites are created as well as related wikidata item. The photo will be tracked with the wikidata ID. If it's viable, we can mass creating articles in Wikipedia. Or choosing an example and uses it on Wikidata.

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

The application may be running late. But we have set up related organization pages in Commons and landing page.


  1. Number of participants: 150

  • It is great to see China joining Wiki Loves Earth this year. They are very motivated and I think that this would be a successful contest and a useful experience for the user group working in a particular context — NickK (talk) 13:20, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
