Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest for monuments, organized by Wikimedia this September. Wikimedia is the movement behind Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – a global collaboration authored by volunteers.
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.

There are a few rules for photos to participate in the international contest. Most of these rules are also adopted as rules for participation on a national level. Every submission should be:
  • Self taken and self uploaded;
  • Uploaded in September 2012;
  • Freely licensed;
  • Contain an identified monument;
  • Nominated through a national contest
Next to that, there are a few practical rules:
  • The participant should have an activated e-mail address on the upload platform;
  • The first winner will get to choose the first prize etc.
If necessary, the rules can be adapted via the international coordinators.
Special categories
Besides the regular contest, there are may be special categories – with their own award and jury. Besides that, the normal rules apply.
