About Wiki Loves Monuments

Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public photo competition around cultural heritage monuments, organized by Wikimedia chapters and groups. In 2010 it was organised in the Netherlands, and was followed by a Europe-wide 2011 edition. Ever since 2012 the competition is organized annually in countries across the world! This is the biggest photography competition in the world and we hope to be able to count on massive participation again this year.

The aim of the contest is to ask the general public —readers and users of Wikipedia, photographers, hobbyists, etc.— to take pictures of cultural heritage monuments and upload them to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.

About this report

The Wiki Loves Monuments international team had this research conducted from the funding within the 2021-2022 grant from the Wikimedia Foundation. The researcher worked from October 2021 - August 2022 and interviewed representatives of more than 20 national teams, with longer and shorter participation in the annual photo competition.
More information about this primary research and the conducted interviews can be found in the mid-term report from April 2022.
