Sponsoring photographic expeditions
Wikimedia Sweden has also sponsored several different photographic expeditions. These include both aerial photography and photo hunts of different kinds.

The chapter encourages participation to the Wikimedia projects, through the organisation of photographic rallies or contests like Wiki Loves Monuments:
