Wiki Loves Monuments is a federative contest, and therefore each contestant is able to win prizes in his respective national contest.

Wiki Loves Monuments is basically composed by a national contest with national prizes and a national jury held in October and an international contest with an international jury which will select the winner in December.

The national jury will select at least 10 photos for the international contest and will reward the best national photos.

All the participants to the contest will be invited to this ceremony.
