2020 Competition

Well Scotland, this isn’t the WLM that we thought we’d be having this year, but then again, nothing’s quite been the same since March, has it?

As lockdown has continued throughout our country, access to digital content has only gotten more important.  Access to high quality, openly-licensed content even more so.  And yes, we might not be able to meet in person this year (or at least not in groups of more than 15 consisting of 5 households or less, outside), but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take part.  Just… be physically distant about it.  And maybe you’ll spend more time looking through and uploading old holiday pictures.

We still have so much ground to cover in Scotland, so many listed buildings and scheduled monuments of which we don’t have images, or not high quality ones.

Maybe your lockdown project was learning photography?  Maybe you’ve spent more time exploring your local area?  Maybe you weren’t on furlough, were working harder than ever, and would like an excuse to get out and about?  Maybe you’re a student going to a new city for the first time and want to get to know it better?

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