Wiki Loves Monuments is a photography contest organised in Belgium & Luxembourg and is part of the international contest of Wiki Loves Monuments in multiple countries. In 2014 the contest is organised for the 4th time in Belgium & Luxembourg.


The purpose of the contest is to ask the public to take photos of cultural heritage and upload it on Wikimedia Commons. In this way we make our heritage visible to the public, enrich Wikipedia with photos to illustrate the articles, and to supply a way for the public to help improve Wikipedia.

History and background[edit]

In 2010 Wiki Loves Monuments was organised for the first time in the Netherlands. In 2011 the contest was organised in multiple European countries, including Belgium and Luxembourg. Also in 2012, and 2013 the contest was organised in Belgium & Luxembourg.
