Wiki Loves Monuments 2019
in the United States

National Winners!

Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 in the United States saw over 500 people contribute over 5,000 photos of cultural and historic sites from all over the United States and its territories. In addition to National Register of Historic Places sites, we welcomed uploads of sites designated by state- and local-level historical institutions and societies. Hundreds of these photos are being used to help illustrate pages across various Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia and Wikidata.

After several weeks and three rounds of judging by our jury members, we are pleased to announce the winners of Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 in the United States. These photos are recognized for their photographic quality, artistic merit, and their encyclopedic value as illustrations of unique historical sites.

We were impressed by all of the uploads, and regret having to narrow it down to just 10. That being said - congratulations to the following winners of the US contest and their amazing photographs! The top-three winners will receive a monetary prize and all ten will receive a certificate and move on to the international jury for a shot at winning an international Wiki Loves Monuments prize.

Finally: Thank you to all participants, as well as to our judges, editors, and organizers who helped make this event possible.
