Europeana’s First World War Award for Wiki Loves Monuments 2013

on Aug 23, 2013
Europeana will award a special prize for the best participating photograph of a monument related to the First World War in this year’s Wiki Loves Monuments competition. Europeana has been an official partner of the contest since 2011, sponsoring each year a special category award. First, it was Art Nouveau (2011) and in 2012 it was GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) buildings.
All valid entries of a monument, building or structure related to the First World War will automatically be considered for inclusion in a future exhibition on – a website dedicated to recording stories from every side of the conflict.
Europeana will also reward both an overall competition winner and the First World War category winner with large-scale aluminium prints of their photographs.
Europeana enables everyone to explore the digital resources of Europe’s museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual collections. It promotes discovery in a multilingual space where users can engage, share in and be inspired by the rich diversity of Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage.
Good luck to everyone!
