We have seen it coming for a while, but now it is official: Wiki Loves Monuments has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the Worlds Largest Photography Competition! With 168,208 submissions we squashed the previous record by roughly 50%. For 2012 we will likely squash our own record, but it will need some time to become official.
Thank you all for making this possible! It was a great journey and I am very glad that all your work gets some extra touch this way!
