Commons:Wiki Science Competition 2017 in Australia
Wiki Science Competition (WSC) is an international photo contest for the sciences hosted by Wikimedia aiming to promote and engage people with science.
This competition was first organized in Estonia. In 2015 it expanded to all of Europe as European Science Photo Competition and resulted in almost 10,000 freely licensed images attracting over 2,200 contesters. This year is the first time it will be organized globally.
This competition was brought to Wikipedia because Wikipedia is an active platform dedicated to collecting and sharing educational content freely to everyone. Being open access, and 7th most accessed website in the world are just some of the features of Wikipedia that make it an excellent platform for science and science photos in particular. Science photo competition is a motivational framework for catalyzing the formation of sustainable relationship between the scientists and Wikimedia community.
Wiki Science Competition consists of two levels: there is a local competition in each participating country and the local organizing team will forward chosen pictures to the international competition.
