Welcome to Wiki Loves Love 2019!
Wiki Loves Love (WLL) is an international photographic contest organized by Wikimedia community to document love testimonials in various cultures and regions of the world.
The basic aim of the competition is to collect photos of love testimonials through human cultural diversity – such as monuments, ceremonies, snapshot of tender gesture and miscellaneous objects used as symbol of love – to illustrate articles in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects. Like Wiki Loves Earth (WLE) and Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM), photos provided must match the theme, although WLL is not limited to any official list of protected areas, love can occur everywhere!
So the focus is not on sites, whether of regional or national importance but on the widest variety of love testimonials possible. This means that most users will be able to find several pertaining subjects close to them, whether heritage sites or daily life event.
