Hi all,

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. 

Please find the blog post on the Wiki Loves Monuments blog here: http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org/wiki-loves-monuments-2011-officially-broke-world-record/

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!
