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!
