Wiki Loves Heritage

Wiki Loves Heritage is a yearly photo contest that is a spin-off, and an extension, of the worldwide Wiki Loves Monuments, so that movable and immaterial heritage, landscapes, folklore, craftsmanship, and museum collections are also allowed. It was organised for the first time in 2018 by Wikimedia Belgium.

Upload Images Info ISA Tool

The goal is to document the Belgian heritage, culture and traditions (both material, and immaterial), including monuments and museum collections. The primary focus is on taking and uploading pictures, including metadata (SDC), but also describing the items on Wikidata and Wikipedia.

Since 15 July 2016 Belgium has freedom of panorama, including permanent public exhibitions. This means that, in principle, you are allowed to take photographs from a public place. You must respect other laws like the general copyright, w:privacy, and image rights. Museums might impose their own restrictions.
