Just wanted to welcome you to Wikimedia Commons and say thanks for sharing your photo of the Appuldurcombe House; Its a stunning picture of a beautiful building. You clearly have a talent for taking photos! Hope you are able to share some more pictures before the end of September. The UK is currently in 8th place in the world and it would be great if you could help us move up the leader board.
Thank you for taking part in Wiki Loves Monuments
Something a bit special happened last month: you probably took part in a photographic world record! Last year’s Wiki Loves Monuments competition set a world record, and the early numbers from this year look even better. We received 370,000 images from 12,000 people across 53 countries. This was the first year that the UK has taken part in the contest, and we are overjoyed to have received no fewer than 11,995 entries from 573 contributors.
Wiki Loves Monuments in the UK was organised by volunteers with backing from Wikimedia UK, the local charity that supports Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects in helping to share educational materials, such as your photos, and making them available to all.
If you want to get more involved, Wikimedia UK is offering free training on how to edit Wikipedia, and workshops on honing your photographic skills. You've made that first step, why not take the next?

Wikimedia UK relies entirely on donations and receives no government funding. If you would like to support the charity in its mission, please consider donating now. Membership costs £5 and ensures you keep up to date with activities both around the country and online.

Speaking for myself, it has been great fun to go out taking pictures and learn about local history, and I hope you enjoyed yourself too. For now, it’s over to the judges. We’ll be announcing the winners in early November.
On behalf of the organisers and volunteers who made Wiki Loves Monuments UK happen, thank you!

Hi Cpsterling, as I thought your picture of Appuldurcombe House was particularly useful and the best example of the built which Wikimedia Commons has I nominated it as a Valued Picture. The banner below was put on my page after the picture was approved, but it's rightly yours. Thank you for uploading your picture. Nev1 (talk) 00:48, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
