Vote for the best GLAM monuments photos!

on Nov 26, 2012

As mentioned in a previous post, Europeana, an Internet portal gathering over 10 million books, paintings, films and museum objects digitalised in the member states of the European Union who is also one of our partners this year, is sponsoring an award in a special category for pictures depicting GLAM monuments — that is, photographs of gallery, library, archive or museum buildings from all the participating countries.

We are now happy to announce that after tirelessly working on picking the best 50 photos out of 2,300 nominations from the 35 countries participating in Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, Europeana have started an open vote on their Facebook page.

It is now up to you to decide who the overall winner of the Europeana GLAM category is going to be! Your likes will count as votes, so please spread the word and help us choose the Europeana Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 winner!

Also, the highest voted photographs representing some of the best examples of GLAM monuments will be featured in a special Europeana Virtual Exhibition. This exhibition will go live in March, and it will feature the Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 GLAM photos as well as related Europeana content.

For now, please vote for the best Europeana GLAM monument photograph; you have until Wednesday, December 5, to make your voice heard in this very special voting!
