Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public competition where you can photograph the monuments that symbolise our cultural heritage (buildings, statues, shipwrecks, etc.) and share the photos with the world by uploading them to Wikimedia Commons: a database of freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute and which anyone can use.

Wiki Loves Monuments has a federal structure and is organised separately in every participating country by the local wikimedia community. The best photographs from participating countries will be entered into an international contest.

Wiki Loves Monuments began as a pilot project in the Netherlands in September 2010. The contest yielded over 12,500 photos captured by more than 250 participants. Due to this huge success, the project was rolled out to 17 more European countries in 2011. More than 165,000 pictures of European monuments were uploaded during the 2011 competition. This year, the competition is going global, with competitions in over 30 countries!
