Pakistan is no doubt a country full of talented people. In 2015, a Pakistani photographer’s captured picture of the mesmerizing Shangrila Lake won the best international picture in Wiki Loves Earth amongst 28 participating countries.

Wiki Loves Earth is an international photography competition which is hosted by Wikimedia Foundation (a California-based non-profit organization, which runs Wikipedia). The first contest took place in 2013 in Ukraine. Since then, it has become a great platform to showcase the young talent with thousands of people participating each year.

The competition aims at the world’s natural heritage, and this year, 1200 competitors have sent 8000 pictures, making Pakistan the third largest country with the greatest number of contestants in any year.

The competition is going to take place in 2017, but the top 10 pictures that would represent Pakistan in this competition short-listed by the jury are listed below:
