The first edition took place in 2010 in the Netherlands, and became international the following year.

Moldova joined in 2021. In 2022, the local contest is held between September 1–30.

2021 AIRM challenge[edit]

Parallel to the contest, 5,492 files from the CC-BY-SA collections of the Agency for Inspection and Restoration of Monuments of Moldova were uploaded to Commons and spread out within the cultural heritage Commons categories, Wikidata items, and Wikipedia lists/articles. This effort was subsequently dedicated to the late Спасимир, who was a mentor and an inspiration for the AIRM project.
