Wiki Loves Earth 2020

Wikipedia is hosting a photo competition called Wiki Loves Earth 2020 - Ireland.

The publication is calling for people to submit photos of, 'protected natural areas in Ireland.'

These can include national parks, nature reserves, geoparks, or special areas of conservation.

The website says the competition is an opportunity to give a 'second life' to photos you might have stored on a phone or computer.

'In addition to being seen by everyone, your pictures could be included in Wikipedia and contribute to the knowledge of Ireland's natural beauty.'
