In 2013 the competition went global with the participation of over 30 countries. This year the contest is expected to grow even more.

A monument is an element, building or place that represents a great historical, cultural or architectural heritage and is protected by law.

“A monument is (…) something special, and it is so special that we shared its value. Each monument is unique and distinguishes itself through its exceptional size, its individual character and detailing, a monument is a familiar landmark in an ever changing environment, and it tells us something about the social, economic and cultural history of a country or region. Monuments are a part of our past, give identity to a place, and consequently have significant sentimental value.”
