Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in Italy
Italy will do it again!
You have pictures of monuments stalled in your computer since your last trip? This is a great opportunity to give them a second life in this Wiki Loves Monuments contest. In addition to being seen by everyone, your pictures could be included in Wikipedia and contribute to the preservation of Italian's cultural and historical heritage. Freely licensed photos collected through Wiki Loves Monuments may also be reused elsewhere than in Wikipedia.
Photos may have been taken at any time. The key criteria to be eligible for the contest are that they are to be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons in September 2016... and that they have been taken by you, of course!
There is no minimum age to participate, and there is no participation fee. Besides WLM being a competition, it is first a fun activity, ideal for families. The competition also allows us to inform our cultural heritage, while improving our photographic talents!
The people interested to help organize the contest are :
Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photographic competition to promote historic sites around the World through Wikimedia projects (mainly Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons). Everybody can participate.
There are a lot of 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 2017. This page introduces the Italian part of this competition.
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 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 Italy, and ultimately in the world.
How to participate
