2023 Competition

In 2022, we had 1105 images uploaded from Scotland.

We still have so much ground to cover in Scotland, so many listed buildings and scheduled monuments of which we either don’t have images on Commons, or where quality could be improved.

Wiki Loves Monuments needs you.  Let’s show off Scotland to the world.

For a wee bit more info, you can read our 2019 blog post, Picturing Scotland.

And if you want to see how our Scotland Programme Coordinator got on during the 2020 competition, there’s this Twitter thread….

Doors Open Day – Scotland 2023

Doors Open Day takes place across Scotland in September – Scotland’s “largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment.”  It’s organised by the Scottish Civic Trust, and “is part of European Heritage Days alongside Scottish Archaeology Month, coordinated by Archaeology Scotland.” 

Also, a great chance to get some interior shots for this competition…

Scottish Archaeology Month 2023

Scottish Archaeology Month, coordinated by Archaeology Scotland, takes place each year in September.  It “encourages people to interact with their archaeology, history and heritage by coordinating and promoting a varied programme of events all across Scotland. These include guided walks, exhibitions, excavations, lectures, performances, re-enactments, traditional skills workshops, storytelling, guided tours, conferences and many other activities.”

Gallery, Library, Museum, Archive, or other heritage or cultural organisation?
