Wiki Loves Food
Wiki Loves Food (WLF) is a public photo competition on Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other project websites of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wikimedia India Chapter is running this contest. For the year 2015, the aim of this project was to improve the quality of pictures of different cuisines of the Indian sub-continental region and to celebrate Indian Cuisine's diversity and beauty.
The contest aimed to educate people about and promote donating images to Commons on a national scale. India has a vibrant photography community and we succeeded in adding 10,000+ Indian Food related photographs on Commons through this contest campaign. More than 3000 people registered for this contest from various parts of India.
