I am proud and delighted to hereby announce that the jury of Wiki Loves
Monuments 2011 in Poland has chosen the three winning photos of the
contest and 7 other pictures that won an honourable mention; all ten
photos are also nominated for the European stage of the competition.
An overview of the winning photos is available at the following page on
the Polish Wikipedia:<http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WLZ>
The jury in Romania is moving according to the schedule and should have
the winners known at then end of the next week.
What I find *really* incredible is that all ten
winning photos have been
uploaded to Wikimedia Commons by users who have registered an account
specifically for the contest. This confirms our assumptions :-) that the
idea of the contest has been really appealing for new users, and I hope
that some of those people can stay on Wikipedia for good.
I would call it a success if the users continue contributing content
*after* the contest ended (and I saw a few such cases)
