- To engage new and existing contributors of the community.
- To add freely licensed, and quality images of natural heritages of the Philippines to Wikimedia Commons.
- To spread awareness about contributing media contents to Wikipedia and its sister projects.
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?
The contest will focus on freely licensed and high quality images of natural heritages here in the Philippines, that will be contributed to Wikimedia Commons for free usage and spread its importance via usage in Wikipedia articles. The competition is important because it gives us exposure of our natural heritages. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, offline activities during the contest will be prohibited. Pictures taken during the contest period will be disqualified. No awarding ceremony this year. Prizes will be sent via courier.
2. How will you let people know about the contest?

- Social media promotion
- Press releases
- Word of mouth
3. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?
We will have a jury composed of people from the Wikimedia community and professional photographers. Prizes will be in term of gift certificate and a trophy. The jury will determine the winners of the local contest taking into the consideration the following criteria:
- Technical quality (sharpness, use of light, perspective etc.);
- Originality and creativity;
- Potential usefulness and overall value of the image (including its licensing) to the Wikimedia projects.
4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?
We will utilize those uploaded resources in Wikimedia projects by communicating to contributors through e-mail or talk page.

- Support Even though the event is more than a month away, I'd strongly suggest the organisers to strictly adhere to all WHO and the Philippine National Government guidelines pertaining to the Covid-19 global pandemic with regard to the conduction of this Event. Aspects such as ensuring participants maintain Social distancing, obtaining prior necessary permissions from the local authorities (if applicable) to conduct WLE should all be planned and executed properly. Pre-planning and careful execution is a must, I really hope the Philippine Community will set an example for Wikimedia communities throughout the world and show how things should be done in testing times such as this. -- Mouryan (talk) 07:30, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
