[This email contains important information on how you can submit the
10 nominees of your country to the international finale and the
deadlines. Please forward this to your coordinators if need be.]
Dear national coordinator, jury coordinator,
Thank you for an amazing job in the past weeks and months in
organizing what seems to have been yet again an amazing competition in
almost 40 countries! It's great to see all the beautiful images that
have been submitted.
As you know, the international Wiki Loves Monuments competition is
based on a federalized model: there's a national competition in each
country, with a national organizing team, a national jury and national
winners. The national jury determines up to (maximum) 10 images that
will be submitted to the international finale.
These ten images should be submitted via email to the international
jury coordinator before the deadline: rodelarwiki(a)gmail.com. Unless
you have agreed a different deadline with Krishna Chaitanya (in cc),
this deadline is 5 December, 23:59 UTC. But if you like me, please
send them at least a few days before that time. *Submissions after
this deadline are not guaranteed to be included in the finale. When
submitting your finalists, please take these instructions into
* Submit no more than ten images per (national) competition. It is OK
to submit less images, for example if you don't find enough images of

at least one (additional) jury member besides yourself. Please also
include Krishna Chaitanya in the cc.
* If the results are still not public (if you plan to announce them
later publicly), please add the planned announcement date. Please note
that we will announce the international winners in January, and will
not wait for national announcements.
* Submit for each image: URL, File name on Wikimedia Commons and Author username
* Check basic information about the images. It is NOT possible to
replace finalists after the deadline!
** that the author has activated their email function on Wikimedia
Commons. If we cannot email the user there, they may automatically
forfeit any prize. You can help them by posting a message on their
talk page, or tracking them down through social media.
** that the monument on the image is identified (preferably also
described in English)
** that the image is freely licensed
If you want, there are opportunities to share your national winners
also on the international blog. Please get in touch with either of us
about this - more information about this soon.
Thanks a lot for your cooperation. After all nominees have been
received, this will result in a pool of some 350-430 images for the
international jury to consider. The jury will first rate all images
with 1-5 stars, from which a top-40/60 will be considered. Then, the
jurors will have the opportunity to remove images from the selection,
which they consider unfit. Finally, they are asked to rank their
top-25 images, and share their reasoning. We will create a jury report
based on this information. We expect to announce the results in
We're looking forward to the judging process!
With warm regards,
International jury coordinator, Wiki Loves Monuments 2022
