Wiki Loves Monuments ( is an annual international photography contest and crowdsourcing event in which participants photograph and upload images of historic monuments to Wikimedia Commons. These images are then available for free use on Wikipedia and beyond. More details about this year's annual competition can be found at Wiki Loves Monuments 2016. The competition takes place throughout the month of September each year.

About the 2016 contestEdit

Participants upload pictures taken by themselves of eligible UK heritage subjects and upload them to Wikimedia Commons during the month of September under a free licence. Uploaded photographs do not have to be taken during September 2016, but they must not have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons before. Participants are free to upload photographs of any eligible subject, even if Commons already has one or more photographs, but of course a new angle or a new detail is more useful to the project than simply repeating what has been done before.
