I think it is indeed a good idea to try and draft such description! Not that we always *have* to use that, but because it can work as a fallback option if we quickly need something that has to be proper.
I would like to keep it short and simple:
Wiki Loves Monuments is a cultural heritage photography contest organized in September. People can upload national monuments in participating countries during the month under a free license for usage on Wikipedia. The best photos will be rewarded by a jury with a prize. The contest is to be organized in more than 15 countries throughout Europe in 2011.
Please add/change/remove at will,
I'm including the Wiki Loves Monuments list because I think this is a broader problem we need to address.

Lantuszka (Julia) of polish WLM here. Following things to-do from Berlin meeting i was to contact several bodies as YfJ, UNESCO, religious communities etc. I was wondering which description of the project you're using when contacting such bodies. The one from commons? or some other? i thought it would be good to use same one and just as intro words i'd add some address words to personal contacts of mine giving them some context info and also about my role in this project (they know me from non-wiki projects) and some more targeted description but i thought it would be good to attach the official description. so shall i use the one from commons project site, or which one? there was the one that we had prepared to be published at wikilovesmonuments.eu site but it's not yet there and so i'm not perfectly sure if it was not accepted or simply not published yet..?
