Wiki Loves Monuments 2020
in the United States

National Winners!

Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 in the United States saw over 1,000 people contribute over 6,000 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 2020 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 many incredible submissions, and as always, it proves to be difficult to narrow it down to just ten winners. That being said - congratulations to the following winners of the US contest and their amazing photographs! All ten will receive a prize and certificate, and will 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.
