The main part of the Wiki Loves Monuments contest is the photo contest. Photos of registered monuments in Norway must be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons during September to qualify. The photos can be taken at any time, but only photos uploaded during the month of September will be judged.
About the contest
Wiki Loves Monuments was first organized in the Netherlands in 2010. In 2011 the contest was expanded to a number of European countries, and in 2012 it went global with 35 participating countries from all over the world. Wikimedia Norge is now organizing the Norwegian part of the contest for the sixth time, having organized it every year since 2011.
An overview of all eligible monuments for the photo contest can be found on Kulturminnesøk, which is a map tool made by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage. More resources can be found on the resource page.
Writing contest
For the first Wikimedia Norge will also organize a writing contest running concurrently with the photo contest. During week 36 and 37 (5 September to 18 September) the weekly contest on the Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk and Northern Sami Wikipedias will be about monuments and architecture. In order to participate you need to register for the writing contest.
