|Welcome to the Wikimedia Commons portal for Wiki Loves Monuments 2018!
Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public photo competition around cultural heritage monuments, organized by Wikimedia chapters and groups. In 2010 it was organised in the Netherlands, and was followed by a Europe-wide 2011 edition. Ever since 2012 the competition is organized annually in countries across the world! This is the biggest photography competition in the world and we hope to be able to count on massive participation again this year.
The aim of the contest is to ask the general public—readers and users of Wikipedia, photographers, hobbyists, etc.—to take pictures of cultural heritage monuments and upload them to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.
Read more about how you can participate in the photo contest on the website of the contest.

Is my country participating in 2018?
Maybe! Check the updated participants list to find out!
Why is my country not participating in 2018?
First of all: we're still months away from the competition, so we don't have a definitive list of participating countries yet. That being said:
Wiki Loves Monuments is organized in a federative manner, which means the organization depends on volunteers in each country. Enthusiastic local teams get in contact with heritage organizations and authorities, create monuments lists in Wikipedia, contact partners and sponsors, and motivate the general public to participate.
- If your country did not participate in 2017, maybe you are interested to help make it happen this year?
On separate subpage we have added more information how you can organize Wiki Loves Monuments 2018 in your country.
