Wiki Loves Monuments is an annual international photographic competition organised by Wikimedia chapters and groups that aims to promote and share knowledge about heritage sites across the world through Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). Everybody can participate in Wiki Loves Monuments.
There are many historic monuments in all participating countries. The goal of Wiki Loves Monuments is to encourage people to take pictures of those monuments, and to put them under a free licence so that others may access them through the Internet. To achieve that, an international contest will take place in September 2016. This page introduces the Maltese part of this competition.
In September, you may upload as many picture as you want of monuments that you have visited. Pictures don't have to be taken in September, but must be uploaded that month to be considered. At the end of the month, the contest jury will begin evaluating the photographs and will choose the best 10 pictures of the monuments in Malta, and ultimately in the world.
