Hi all,

with 12 hour to go until the submission deadline (23:59h UTC, 31 October), we have not yet received & processed submissions from the following countries: 

Armenia, Bolivia, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, France, India, Jordan, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, United States

Please note that this is a HARD deadline. The amount of countries that has not submitted anything yet is worrying. If images are not submitted before the deadline, they are most likely not competing for the international prizes

Please send your 10 nominees (less than 10 is OK, more isn't) per country to myself and Monica Mora (in cc). 

Kind regards,

Dear all,

Here the current state of the international finale: 

At this point, we have received nominees from 19 competitions (20 countries, including Luxembourg). We still are expecting nominations from: 

Antarctica, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Bolivia, Cameroon, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Mexico, Nepal, Norway, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Syria, Tunisia, Ukraine, United States and Venezuela

If your country is in this list, and you are under the impression that you already submitted your nominees, please get in touch. We keep a constant overview of which nominees we processed on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2013/Winners - please do NOT update this status yourself. 

Please note there is a deadline on 31 October, 23:59 UTC for submitting your nominees. Each participating country can submit up to 10 nominees. You can submit them by having one of the jury members or organizers (with a jury member in cc) to send a list of maximum 10 URL's of the winning pictures to myself and Monica Mora. You can do this under embargo - we will only share this with the international jury. 

A jury of six jurors has been instructed with the procedures (very similar to last year), which will result in a jury report and outcomes to be published in the second week of December. Exact dates will follow when available, but the time there mostly depends on layout work etc. 

Looking forward to many more beautiful nominees,

International coordinating team & jury moderator
