Rules for participation

There are a few rules for photos to participate in the international contest. Most of these rules are also adopted as rules for participation on a national level. Every submission should be:

  • Self taken and self uploaded;
  • Uploaded in September 2017;
  • Freely licensed;
  • Contain an identified monument;
  • Nominated through a national contest

Next to that, there are a few practical rules:

  • The participant should have an activated e-mail address on the upload platform;
  • The first winner will get to choose the first prize etc.

If necessary, the rules can be adapted via the international coordinators.

Wiki Loves Monuments ( is an annual international photography contest and crowdsourcing event in which participants photograph and upload images of historic monuments to Wikimedia Commons. These images are then available for free use on Wikipedia and beyond. More details about this year's annual competition can be found at Wiki Loves Monuments 2017. The competition takes place throughout the month of September each year.

This will be the 3rd Time Malaysia has taken part in the competition, and everyone is welcome to get involved, whether as a participant (photographer), organisational volunteer, or both. There is no requirement for participants or volunteers to be from Malaysia .

The Malaysia part of the competition is volunteer-led, with significant support from our team WIKI Loves Monuments Malaysia 2017.

About the contest

Wiki Loves Monuments in the Malaysia will follow the same rules as the international competition. Participants upload pictures taken by themselves of listed buildings within Malaysia and upload them to Wikimedia Commons during the month of September under a free licence. Uploaded photographs do not have to be taken during September 2016, but they must not have been uploaded to Wikimedia Commons before. Participants are free to take photographs of any eligible building, even if Commons already has one or more photographs, but of course a new angle or a new detail is more useful to the project than simply repeating what has been done before.
