Wiki’s first ever photo contest in Greece saw over 3,344 photos submitted by 364 users, the majority of which were first time contributors.

The competition winner of “Wiki Loves Earth Greece 2016” photo competition was a stunning image of Drakolimni (Dragon Lake) on Mt Tymfi, located in the northern Pindus mountain range, northwestern Greece, and was submitted by Ale30307.

The sub-alpine lake resides at an altitude of 2050 meters above sea level, in the Vikos–Aoos National Park, which accepts over 100,000 visitors per year. The lake is inhabited by a species of alpine newt and is a popular trekking destination in the spring and autumn.

A picture of Lake Stymfalia in rain and the Kakoperatos Cave in Samos complete the first three positions. The pictures have now been submitted to the international section of the competition.
