Dear all, 

An update on Hong Kong's situation - as of late August there are still very strict social distancing measures in place. All gatherings of more than 2 people are banned in public places. 

While there are ways WLM participants can work without being physcially outside - such as digitising old photos - there are still public health concerns surrounding the contest. Therefore, we are monitoring the social distancing measures imposed by the government. If such measures are not relaxed substantially 2 weeks prior to 1 October, we may need to cancel the contest in Hong Kong.

主旨: Re: [Wiki Loves Monuments] Participation dates - please make sure to confirm

Hi all,

I have updated the website here: and here:

Please note that for many countries, we don't have a national landing page link yet. Please update the list of participating countries with that information. 

Jernej: I suggest to start a new thread about this, and link the templates you're concerned about. I know Romaine does a lot of updating in these days, and I'm not sure if this is on his radar - so thanks for keeping an eye out!

Rebecca: same for Monumental, please start a separate thread about that, and ping Pawel.

Hi all,

we confirmed our participation for october this year. We have a deeply impact of covid19 in Perú, so we are going on with care and attention.

Ovruni fixed a little bug on WLM template that we use.

And we are coordinanting with our jury members and some participants of the passed years in order to take care about our process here.

We hope you all are fine,

All the WLM templates still list September as the focal month, even if some communities have decided on later months (AFAIK, they were just updated by a bot from last year). Should we change them manually? Who will take care that they will be displayed on time?

Hi all,

The following national organizers seem not yet to have confirmed their participation dates for this year: 
- Algeria
- Egypt
- Finland
- Guinea
- Hong Kong
- Ireland
- Norway
- Peru

Please make sure to confirm your participation with dates here: . This is important, because of the altered timeline this year

Looking forward to an exciting competition this year again! Please do share what activities you're taking up this year with other countries - we can all use some inspiration. I saw at least one exciting photography workshop/masterclass that was hosted online (I think it was Romania?), which sounds like an excellent idea! Please create a new thread on this list, and share your ideas or best practices.
