Welcome to   Wiki Loves Monuments
the photo competition for monuments in Ghana

Wiki Loves Monuments is an event where everyone can participate by taking photos of listed monuments and upload them for use on Wikipedia. Amongst the best photos uploaded in September 2012 prices are given. The first price is a free visit to the next Wikimania 2013 in Hongkong.

All pictures will be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons under a free license in order to be available for any future usage. Wikimedia Commons is the online multimedia library, hosting for example all the illustration of all the Wikipedia in every language.

During September, you have the possibility to upload as many pictures as you want of monuments you visited. The pictures don't have to be taken in September, but only files that are uploaded in September count in this contest. At the end of the contest, a jury will select the nicest pictures which best represent the object. Owners of the winning pictures will receive prizes and recognition during a celebration evening where all participants of the contest will be invited.

Our first appearance on WLM, we hope to upload as many photos as possible. Thank you for being a part! Be sure to upload more photos!

Finding geo-coordinates of monuments, forts, and museums is much simpler using the Map Coordinates website. Do well to extract important coordinates and add them to the Ghana material cultural heritage page

Pictures about other monuments and subjects, and pictures of monuments uploaded outside the month of September, do not participate in this competition, but are also very welcome!
