This year we will offer gifts to judges: We will have a panel of judges who will set criteria for best images and use these as a basis to select the best images for local awards.

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

We are going to work on a new method discovered during the WLE 2019 competition, it has proved very effective just by adding a small Algerian flag to the right and to the left of WLE2019 WikiPedia banners. Of course, we will also keep our winning solutions from previous competitions (social media ad)
for lack of availability we canceled the photos Walk :(
