Wiki Loves Heritage is a yearly photo contest that is a spin-off, and an extension of Wiki Loves Monuments, so that movable, immaterial, maritime heritage, landscapes, and museum collections are also allowed. It was organised for the first time in 2018 by Wikimedia Belgium.

This page documents the technical side of the photo contest projects.
