Wiki Loves Earth 2017 in India

Wiki Loves Earth 2017 India is a photo contest about protected natural areas, within areas in India. Images must be licensed under free licenses.
Wiki Loves Earth (WLE) is an annual international photographic competition held during the month of June, organized worldwide by the Wikipedia community members with the help of local Wikimedia affiliates across the globe. Participants take pictures of local natural heritage and scenic landscape in their countries, and upload them to Wikimedia Commons. The aim of event is to highlight the conservation areas of the participating countries with the goal to encourage people to capture pictures of these sights, and to put them under a free licence which can then be re-used not only in Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone.
Registration required for uploading.

In June, you may upload as many pictures as you want of natural sites that you have visited. Pictures don't have to be taken in June, but must be uploaded during that month to be considered. Provide your photo with {{Wiki Loves Earth 2017|in}} template. At the end of the month, the contest jury will begin evaluating the photographs and will choose the best 10 pictures of the natural sites in India, and ultimately in the world.
