Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2017 in Ukraine
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 license so that others may access them through the Internet. To achieve that, an international contest takes place in September 2017. This page introduces the Ukrainian part of this competition.
In September, you may upload as many picture 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 awarding prizes for the best pictures in Ukraine, and ultimately in the world.
