More than 25.000 images were uploaded for the French contest of Wiki Loves Monuments. Today the jury announced the results for France, and it can be taken as a sign for our international community and contest structure, a good karma for the traditional Franco-German Friendship or just as “fun fact” that the winning image was taken by a German.
The five-headed jury consisted of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, internationally renowned photographer, professional photographer Gwenn Boussard, Benoît Evellin, recent Wikimedian in residence at the Château de Versailles, Rémi Mathis, president of Wikimedia France and Marie-Lan Nguyen, amateur photographer and Wikimedian.
A price ceremony will take place at December 9, 19:30 h at the Musée de Cluny in Paris.
And here are the 10 best photos from France that go to the European contest:
