Ever thought of seeing your own photos on Wikipedia ?
This is your chance to take part in our annual photography competition to improve
Wikipedia. The encyclopaedia is visited by 500 million people every month, and needs you
to help improve its photos.
Wiki Loves Monuments UK is aimed at the UK's listed buildings and ancient monuments,
and starts on Monday 1st September. The contest is supported by the Royal Photographic
Society, English Heritage, and Wikimedia UK.
We've got lots of pictures of Tower Bridge and Stonehenge, but there's so much
more of the country's heritage to celebrate. There are tens of thousands of eligible
sites, so check out the UK competition website (http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org.uk
see what's nearby. As well as prizes for the best image, we have a special prize this
year for the best image of a listed building on one of the 'At Risk' registers.
It doesn't matter when your photos are taken so long as they're uploaded by the
end of September. If you took some stunning pictures back in April, or five years ago,
you can still upload them.
