Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest for monuments, organized by Wikimedia this September. Wikimedia is the movement behind Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – a global collaboration authored by volunteers.
On 11th of September, the fourth edition of Wiki Loves Monuments Kosovo was presented in front of the interested audience at the European Union Information and Culture Centre in Pristina.
The competition is already open for submissions, while in order to be eligible for the competition, all photographs should be taken from 1st-30th of September 2018, in good resolution and in accordance with copyrights.
Photo lovers around Kosovo have a chance to win different prizes, including here an opportunity to exhibit their work and also have photos printed. Results will be announced around 25th of October.
The contest is inspired by the successful 2010 pilot in the Netherlands, which resulted in 12,500 freely licensed images of monuments that can now be used in Wikipedia and by anybody for any purpose.
Since then, the project helped to collect information on 1,5 million monuments from 76 national competitions − with more than 1,7 million pictures submitted by over 60,000 participants, adding to the sum of all human knowledge gathered on Wikipedia.
