Wiki Loves Monuments
Wiki Loves Monuments is an worldwide event where everyone can participate by taking pictures of listed monuments and upload them for use on Wikipedia.
Concept of the contest
The concept of this contest is to upload in the month September a maximum of photos of cultural property of national significance in Belgium and Luxembourg to make our cultural heritage visible for the public. At the end of the contest, a jury will select the nicest pictures which best represent the object. Owners of the winning pictures will receive prizes and recognition during a celebration evening where all participants of the contest will be invited.
It started in 2010 in the Netherlands and quickly spread to other countries in Europe and the World. Belgium organised Wiki Loves Monuments in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
All pictures are to be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons under a free license in order to be available for any future usage. Wikimedia Commons is the online multimedia library, hosting for example all the illustration of all the Wikipedia in every language.
