The first ever photo in Wiki Loves Monuments Croatia: Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, Croatia.

Wiki Loves Monuments is a photography contest in which the participants upload images of cultural heritage at Wikimedia Commons, so that they can be subsequently used in Wikipedia's articles. The first edition took place in 2010 and was organized by the Netherlands. The contest became international in 2011.

Croatia joined this year. The local contest is held between September 1– September 30, 2017. In September, you may upload as many pictures as you want of monuments that you have visited. Pictures don't have to be taken in September, but must be uploaded during that month to be considered. Provide your photo with {{Wiki Loves Monuments 2017|hr}} template. 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 Croatia, and ultimately in the world.

  • Start date: September 1, 2017
  • End date: September 30, 2017
  • Decision of local results: October 2017
  • Deadline for the international results: November, 2017
