Organized for the second time and in close collaboration with many cultural partners such as the Bundesdenkmalamt, Wiki Loves Monuments was once again a grand success in Austria. With more than 10,000 submissions submitted by almost 300 people, the jury had the hard task to select the winners, and came up with the images below!
The winning pictures show clearly that Austria has no shortage of beautiful bridges, castles or churches – and definitely also not or great photographers. Inside and outside; day and night; winter and summer – all opposites are somehow represented in this selection.
Austria was also particular because of the highly motivated group of volunteers that organized Wiki Loves Monuments. And organizing it only in their country wouldn’t be enough: they helped, on a personal title, the organizers of Wiki Loves Monuments in Southern Tyrol (a region in the north of Italy) and Slovakia to get their lists together and well organized. We hope that also in 2013 we can see yet another fruitful collaboration with even more beautiful illustrations of Austrian heritage.
