Wikipedia Loves Northern Pakistan is an online photography competition about natural heritage sites in Pakistan. It is a part of the international annual photographic competition Wiki Loves Earth which start on the 1st May and end on the 31st May 2015.

The aim of month-long international Wiki Loves Earth photography competition is to highlight and promote the natural heritage sites of the participating countries with the goal to encourage people to capture pictures of naturally significant sites, and to put them under a free licence as opposed to traditional copyright which can then be re-used not only on Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone freely. To achieve that, Wiki Loves Earth is annually taking place every September since 2013.

This is the first time Pakistan is participating in the multinational photography competition. So please participate because the world is waiting to see what natural heritage of Pakistan mean to you!
