If there is any urgent matter, visit our IRC channel and call the name "Romaine" for help, visit:
#wikilovesmonuments     (with webchat)

Also less urgent matters are welcome there!

August and September are months with much e-mail traffic and only using e-mail can cause delays in gettgling things done!


To get attention for the photo contest Wiki Loves Monuments, the international team will create a banner that will be shown on top of page on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons during the month of September. This banner will link to your website or landing page. The banner will be activated only if you meet the requirements, and have provided a link to the landing page on Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016/Landing pages and translation(s) of the banner text in your local language(s) on this page below.

We can only activate the banner in time, if you have provided us all the translations and information in time. If provided in time, the banner will be activated in your country within the hour after the start of the contest in your country. (In the IRC channel #wikilovesmonuments at Freenode live status updates will be provided with the start of the contest.)


The banners in this campaign will be specifically calling people to participate in the contest in their country. While they can also participate in other countries, they will be directed to their own country landing page to keep it simple. Each country landing page should have at least a summary in English and a link to the international website

The campaign will be especially targeted to anonymous users, so that the awareness goal of this contest is reached best. Allowing non-contributors to participate through the simplified upload wizard is one of the strengths of this competition.

When & WhereEdit

The banners will run during the Wiki Loves Monuments contest. In most countries this will be 1 - 30 September 2016 (overview of start and end times). When necessary, the first days may be used for testing in specific countries or sampled (show to 1 in n users). In a few countries, an alternative period can be used (like in Israel, which uses the Hebrew month system) but the banner usage will be limited to one month at most.

The banners will only be shown in the participating countries.


The banner in each country will be translated in as many languages as possible and relevant to that country, but at least in English and the primary language(s) of that country. For example, in Belgium the banner would have to be at least available in English, Dutch and French. More languages will be added as available.


The banner will only be activated if the national team satisfies the requirements as mentioned on Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016/Organise, including:

  1. The text(s) for the banner translated in the primary language(s) spoken in your country is added to this page.
  2. The link for the banner to a landing page is provided on Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016/Landing pages.
  3. The landing page contains (provided in the major languages of your country):
    1. It contains the contest rules, see Organise page.
    2. It contains a link to the international Wiki Loves Monuments website:
    3. It contains a link to one or more of these options:
      1. A link to the upload form of your country/area; and/or
      2. A link to the monument list(s) (with the eligible monuments) that contain a direct upload link; and/or
      3. A map where participants can find a link to start uploading.
    4. The website or landing page contains an English page or summary in English for international participants.

The landing page must also contain information about the selection of the winners (jury) and the prizes.

URL of CentralNoticeEdit

Where should the CentralNotice in your country link to?

Add this to the page Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2016/Landing pages.

Text of CentralNoticeEdit

The banner will contain one or two sentences, the Wiki Loves Monuments logo. The banner will call to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments, upload images for use on Wikipedia and win a nice prize (the exact combination and wording depends on the language). We offer at least one default banner and might offer more than one (for example one about a certain record) and is up to the local team to decide which one to put on.

Main banner textEdit

The texts below are (with the creation of this page) a copy from the texts of 2014. If your local team likes to use a different text instead, you can change the texts below. Keep in mind that the text in the table below also will be shown to people who speak your language, but are from a different country than yours. So avoid country specific texts in the banner texts below.

In the table below are also countries that do not participate in this year's Wiki Loves Monuments, just ignore those: they are there for administrative purposes only.
