Wiki Loves Monuments

Join the contest

Participate in Wiki Loves Monuments, the largest photography competition in the world, and help Wikipedia document monuments and heritage buildings. The only thing you have to do for that is to upload a freely-licensed image of a monument in one of the participating countries to Wikimedia Commons.

Wiki Loves Monuments is running in more than 30 countries around the world in 2023. Every country organizes the competition over a one-month period between 1 September and 31 October, with its own monuments, organisation, partners and awards – and the ten best photos for each country will be submitted to the international finale. By entering a national competition, you automatically compete in the international competition.
