September is the month in which a great an interesting contest takes place. loves Monuments is a photo contest organized by European monuments. Everybody can contribute images as well as write articles.
The contest is organized in each country by a local organization. The rules of the contest are very simple – and I’m mentioning them as written on the official site: //www.wikilovesmonuments.eu/contest/
There are a few rules for photos to participate in the European contest. Most of these rules are also adopted as rules for participation on a national level. Every submission should be:
- Self taken and self uploaded
- Uploaded in September 2011
- Freely licensed
- Contain an identified monument
- Nominated through a national contest
Next to that, there are a few practical rules:
- The participant should have an activated e-mail address on the upload platform
- The first winner will get to choose the first prize etc.
If necessary, the rules can be adapted via the international coordinators.
I think this contest is a great idea! There are so many monuments – more or less known – that can be shown to the world from each and every European country. A large database of photos showing great places in Europe. Thus this presentation of the contest here.
I intend to participate and submit at least one photo. I already have some ideas on that I want to photograph – I only hope to have the time!
What do you think of this contest?
