Wiki Loves Monuments is a photography contest in which the participants upload images of items of cultural heritage at Wikimedia Commons, so that they can be subsequently used in Wikipedia's articles. The first edition took place in 2010 in the Netherlands, and became international the following year.

Moldova participated in 2021, 2022, and 2023.

The goal of Wiki Loves Monuments Moldova contest is to keep gathering as much quality images as possible featuring cultural heritage of Moldova. By having an extensive collection of photos, it becomes possible to illustrate lists and articles on the country's historical, architectural, and archaeological monuments.
