Wiki Science Competition is an international scientific photo competition organised by the Wikimedia community. The annual competition is open to all and participants must create science-related images and upload them under a free license. It is impossible to imagine our culture without science. And in the visual world we live in, it's not enough to talk about science; you have to see it.
