Wiki Loves Monuments is a photo contest that has been run every year since 2010 on our sister project Wikimedia Commons. Since 2011, hundreds of thousands of photos have been uploaded each September for the contest. The project is dedicated to documenting the world's cultural heritage, and is one of the largest photo contests in the world. After judges award prizes in each country represented in the contest, an international jury picks the international winners. You can see the 2019 winners below or at Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 winners.
