In its ambition to grant everyone free access to the sum of all knowledge, Wikimedia Nederland aims to collect as many high quality photos of monuments as possible. Therefore Wikimedia Nederland organizes a bi-yearly photo contest, in which participants are invited to share their photos. These photos provide all Wikipedia users with a full overview of the beautiful cultural heritage in the Netherlands. The best photos are rewarded with wonderful prizes.
In order to participate in the Wiki Loves Monuments contest, participants should upload their photos during the month September. After September it is still possible to upload photos, but these will not be eligible for prizes anymore.
We ask participants to upload their photos under a public copyright license which allows anyone to use their photos on Wikipedia. Below you can find the conditions that photos have to meet in order to participate in the contest.
Conditions for participation:
A jury of experts in photography and heritage will decide on the winners. Members of the Wiki Loves monuments jury can only participate on a non-competitive basis. When necessary, these guidelines can be adjusted by the organization.
Correspondence about the decision of the jury is not possible. Photos will be assessed on the basis of three criteria:

Uploading through the lists:
You can only upload through the list, when there is no picture yet. If there is a picture already on display, or you want to upload more pictures simultaneously, then go to Wikimedia commons.
The uploading itself:
Wikimedia Nederland wil met Wiki Loves Monuments zo veel mogelijk kwalitatief hoogwaardige foto’s van monumenten verzamelen, zodat iedereen die gebruik maakt van bijvoorbeeld Wikipedia een goed overzicht krijgt van het prachtige culturele erfgoed van Nederland.
De wedstrijd Wiki Loves Monuments wordt gehouden in de maand september. Foto's die in de maand september worden ingezonden (ge-upload), dingen mee naar mooie prijzen.
