Every year, tens of thousands of monument photos are uploaded as part of Wiki Loves Monuments contest. We, a group of Wikivoyagers, see an opportunity for such photos to be used in Wikivoyage. Therefore, we have designed an experimental contest as part of Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 to encourage the uploading and usage of monuments photos.

Wikivoyage introduces its free travel guides using page banners, which are panoramic images having the 7:1 aspect ratio, like the one that you see at the top of this page. They depict famous attractions or panoramic views of a destination and can be easily cropped from Wiki Loves Monuments photos.

General rules of Wiki Loves Monuments apply. Your banners should be:

  • Self taken and self uploaded;
  • Uploaded in September 2017;
  • Freely licensed;
  • Contain an identified heritage monument (panoramic photos are fine)


Page banners were graded by a jury composed of active Wikivoyagers. Each jury member selected 20 favorites. For each vote of a jury member, the author scored:

  • 5 points for banners used in Wikivoyage travel guides
  • 3 points for banners used in Wikivoyage meta-pages
  • 1 point for banners not used in Wikivoyage

Final grades:

Congratulations to Elena Tatiana Chis on winning the contest!
