Wiki Loves Monuments is a photo contest for monuments, organized by Wikimedia. Wikimedia is the movement behind Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The contest will start the 1st September and will finish the 30 September 2013.
There are a few rules for photos to participate. Every submission should be:
- self taken and self uploaded;
- uploaded in September 2013;
- freely licensed;
- contain an identified monument.
Over 10’000 objects need your photos. Thank you for contributing in documenting the Swiss cultural heritage on Wikipedia.
The initiative has got support from the PCP Section of the Federal Office for Civil Protection (FOCP) which is happy to see that, this year again, the Wiki Loves Monuments photo contest contributes to raising public awareness for cultural heritage. It is grateful to Wikimedia CH for this initiative and wishes all the participants good luck with shooting excellent pictures!
