Wiki Loves Monuments PH 2019 Team is looking for volunteers[edit]

Wiki Loves Monuments PH 2019 Team is looking for volunteers to help with reviewing this year’s entries and identifying a long list of images for submission to the judges who will pick the final winners. You don't need to be a top photographer to volunteer for this, but you should have a good understanding of what makes an exceptional photograph and be able to distinguish good from mediocre images. You'd need to be able to commit to something like four or five hours work, mostly during October but perhaps during September as well.

If you are able to help, please contact us in the talk page, thru Filipinayzd (talk) or PhilWiki Community Facebook page.
