Wiki Loves Monuments


Wiki Loves Monuments is a photo contest, sponsored by Wikimedia, which involves six continents and more than 50 countries around the world for the enrichment of free stock photos of Wikipedia. This is the second edition of Wiki Loves Monuments, an international photo competition that enhances the visibility of monuments and invites everyone to be a leader in documenting, enhancing and protecting the cultural heritage. 

For monuments of course, as it does UNESCO, a vast genre of works that includes buildings, sculptures, archaeological, architectural, natural sites and human intervention in nature that have great value from the point of view of art, historical, aesthetic, ethnographic and scientific. 

The pictures taken will be used to illustrate Wikipedia entries all editions, offering huge international exposure to cultural heritage. The photographers can choose to capture one or more monuments among those listed on the project website and there is no limit to the number of shots with which they can participate.

The project is promoted and coordinated by the Wikimedia, social promotion association that deals with the spread of free knowledge.

Last year Wiki Loves Monuments has produced photographs of the cultural heritage, loaded with free license on Wikimedia Commons by 803 participants.

In order to enter the monuments of the town, province, region in the competition you would need a permit to photograph the monuments of the country or city that want to join and drop photos with a Creative Commons license Attribution.
