Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh join Wiki Loves Monuments for the first time this year. There are roughly 25.000 monuments in the current lists. Do you want to help? Make photos of these monuments and upload them to Wikimedia Commons until 30 September.
How to participate?
Find monuments in your locality. Check: are they in the lists of the monuments? Note the monument ID!
Make photos of the monuments. Make as much and as good photos of as many monuments as you can.
Classify your photos: which ID belongs to which monument?
Upload your photos to Wikimedia Commons from 1 to 30 September. Do you need help? Come to one of the workshops (see below)!
Freedom of Panorama
Armenia has freedom of panorama (FoP), so you can shoot any monument you can find. There is no FoP in Nagorno-Karabakh, so we can only upload photos of monuments if the architect died before 1944.
