Photos from Wiki Loves Monuments can be used in different contexts. Wikivoyage, the free travel guide, invites you to convert your photos into banner images like the one that you see at the top of this page. Every travel guide at Wikivoyage contains the so-called page banner, a wide image accommodating the title of the page and its table of contents. The idea behind is to introduce the travel destination in a visual and attractive form (example). The banners can depict panoramic views, important landmarks, or their recognizable details. Page banners can be easily cropped from the Wiki Loves Monuments photos.

This year we invite you to contribute page banners for Wikivoyage as part of Wiki Loves Monuments 2018. Participation is simple:

* Crop your WLM photo such that it has the 7:1 aspect ratio and at least 1800px along the horizontal direction
  • Upload the cropped file here. Don't forget a short description!
  • If your source image is already on Commons, please, link it (Upload Wizard has a separate field for that)
  • If you like, propose your banner on a talk page of a Wikivoyage travel guide. Local community will then decide on its usage.

Fine print: please, give your files meaningful names, such as Destination_banner-XXX.jpg, where XXX can be any description

Crop your WLM photo and plunge forward!
Upload your banners

General rules of Wiki Loves Monuments apply. Your banners should be:

  • Self taken and self uploaded;
  • Uploaded between September 1 and October 31 (you can take your time and participate in the banner competition after the end of the regular WLM)
  • Freely licensed;
  • Contain an identified heritage monument (panoramic photos are fine)

Page banners will be graded by a jury composed of active Wikivoyagers. Each jury member will select his/her favorite banners based on several criteria, including the artistic value and appropriateness for Wikivoyage. For each vote of a jury member, the author of the banner will score 1 point, or 3 points when the banner is used in a meta-page, or 5 points when the banner is used in a Wikivoyage travel guide. The winners, who will score the most points, will be awarded with printed travel guides for the region(s) of their choice.
