Wiki Loves Love is an international photography campaign which aims to document love testimonials across various societies, communities and beyond through the whole world. From monuments to ceremonies, from miscellaneous objects used as symbol of love to tender gestures, let’s show to the world how love is expressed everywhere and in various ways.
The 2019 edition is essentially a Wikimedia Commons contest which will attain the valuable media – images and videos about different festivals and wedding ceremonies in cultures around the globe that can later support various Wikimedia projects. It will animate the broader Wikimedia community in improving its coverage on various cultures and new forms of heritage that haven’t otherwise been documented so far.
The contest is scheduled to run from 1st February to 28th February 2019. The theme calls for photographs and videos files that document all manner of festivals, celebrations, ceremonies and rituals of love across the continents in different cultures and regions.
