Albania and Kosovo, part of "Folk Wiki Lovers"

Wikimedia has organized an international photo contest called "Folk Wiki Lovers". Its purpose is to document different cultures around the world. Albanians, both in Albania and in Kosovo, are invited to enter their photo archives or visit museums, places with folklore or historical content and upload them to "Wiki Loves Folklore in Albania and Kosovo".

The main purpose of the competition is to collect diverse cultural and human photographs to illustrate the articles in the free world encyclopedia "Wikipedia" and other projects of the Wikimedia organization. The photographs should match the theme of the folklore: present images from folklore festivals, dance, cuisine, traditional clothing or the routine of daily life emphasizing the Albanian folk culture.

The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2021 until February 28, 2021. Prizes and certificates will be awarded for the three best photos where the first place wins 50 euros, the second, 30 and the third 20 euros. Everyone can participate, regardless of age, nationality and place of residence.
