As you probably know, the Wiki Loves Monuments competition starts this Sunday, 1st
September, and we would like to get as many entries from the UK as we possibly can,
especially as it's our first time taking part. Our new shiny website is now up at
. Please visit and leave us a message!
Please do your bit by letting friends and family around the country know, and please also
spread the word to local societies that you may be involved with. Of particular interest
are local historical groups, civic groups and photographic clubs.
Competitors from outside the UK are more than welcome to enter. It's perfectly OK to
enter images that you took when you were last on holiday in the UK.
I have created an email template that you can copy if you wish. It's designed to be
sent to a society, but should be easy to change if you are emailing friends. See:
If you are able to spread the word to local or national societies, please leave a note at
so that we can keep a record of which groups we have contacted and avoid the task of
having to re-build the list from scratch next year. Don't worry about the layout, as
the page is still unfinished, but leave a note to say what you have done, or to make a
suggestion. If the latter, please add it to the Top Do list and not to any of the main
Many thanks, and regards
