Wilders cancelled a similar contest in August last year after police arrested a man who had threatened to kill him over his plan.
At the time, plans to hold the contest prompted large demonstrations in Pakistan, organised by Islamist party Tehreek-e-Labbaik, which called on Islamist countries to sever all ties with the Netherlands .
Images of the Prophet Muhammad are traditionally forbidden in Islam as idolatrous.
