  1. I support this proposal. __Chaduvari (talk) 03:40, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
  2. Several photo contests are happening in India and around the world. But, there are very few activities planned around using this ocean of photos in Wikimedia projects. This contest/plan tries to bridge that gap. I believe this is very crucial project. I support this proposal. --Pavan santhosh.s (talk) 07:03, 16 May 2021 (UTC)
