Wikimedia Photo ContestSubmit your monument photos to the largest photography competition in the world, and allow them to be used in the popular online encyclopaedia Wikipedia! Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest for monuments, organized by Wikimedia this September. Wikimedia is the movement behind Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia – a global collaboration authored by volunteers.

In nearly 40 countries all over the world, a national contest will be organized with their national monuments, partners, rules, events and winners. Every national contest will be able to nominate some of their winning pictures for the international contest. These nominated pictures will be judged by the international jury, which will then award extra prizes to the best images from all participating countries.
