Wiki Loves Monuments — And Your Photos!
The Wikipedia photo contest around cultural heritage is open! Wiki Loves Monuments is a public photo competition around cultural heritage monuments, organised by Wikipedia/Wikimedia chapters and groups.
This year again, different MENA countries participate: Algeria, Egypt, Tunisia along with four others from the Levant (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine).
The only rules of the contest are:
- you need to have taken the picture yourself;
- the subject of the picture is a historical site recognised by the government or national organization specialised in cultural or historical landmarks, or is on the UNESCO World Heritage List;
- you accept to upload the picture under a CC BY-SA 4.0 licence.
Submissions are open until 30 September 2015, so go ahead and submit your photographs!
As per the rules:
After the contest period, a local jury judges the participating photos and chooses the 10 best photos of that country/area. At least the number one winner, and mostly more winners, receive a prize, often reached out during a prize ceremony. In some local contests there is an additional special prize category for photos about a certain subject.
The 10 winning photos of a country/area participate in the international round of the photo contest.
Below are our picks from the 2014 edition. Enjoy — and don’t forget to participate!Posted on: September 17, 2015, by : rayna
