Wiki Loves Monuments in Prato

locandina wiki loves monuments

The world's largest photo contest to bring cultural heritage to Wikipedia also comes to Prato.

What is Wiki Loves Monuments
Promoted in our country by Wikimedia Italia, Wiki Loves Monuments has become part of the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest photo contest in the world for the number of taken shots.
Citizens of over 50 countries globally are invited to photograph the beauties of cultural heritage by sharing their free licensed photos on Wikimedia Commons, the large multimedia database connected to Wikipedia.
All the images collected by the competition thus become freely accessible and reusable by anyone and are used to illustrate the entries of the free encyclopedia.

Who can participate
The competition will take place from 1st to 30th September 2019 and is open to all, photography enthusiasts and professionals, with no age restrictions.

Monuments of Prato
Also the city of Prato is participating this year with a list of monuments to photograph!
Your photographs could help to enrich the Wikipedia voices dedicated to Prato's monuments with quality images.

Taking part in the 8th edition of Wiki Loves Monuments it's very easy!
From 1st to 30th September 2019, upload your shots by following the instructions on the Wiki Loves Monuments Italia website.
The best photos will be awarded by a local jury on the 23rd of November 2019 on the occasion of the 10th birthday of the Lazzerini Library in the Campolmi Factory.
