Welcome to the Wikimedia Commons portal for Wiki Loves Monuments 2018 in Morocco!
Wiki Loves Monuments (or WLM) is an annual international photographic competition held during the month of September. It is organized worldwide by the Wikipedia community members with the help of local Wikimedia affiliates across the globe.
Participants take pictures of local historical monuments and heritage sites in their region and upload them to Wikimedia Commons.
The aim of the event is to highlight the heritage sites of the participating countries with the goal to encourage people to capture pictures of these monuments and to upload them under a free licence. These pictures can then be re-used not only in Wikipedia but everywhere by everyone.
