Photographing Wales’ heritage 2018

Wiki Loves Monuments is an annual international photography contest and crowdsourcing event in which participants photograph and upload images of historic monuments to Wikimedia Commons. These images are then available for free use on Wikipedia and beyond. The competition takes place throughout the month of September each year.

This year’s images can be found here: Category:Images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2018 in Wales.

Everyone is welcome to get involved, whether as a participant (photographer), organizational volunteer, or both. There is no requirement for participants or volunteers to be from Wales. The Welsh part of the competition is volunteer-led, with significant support from Wikimedia Community User Group Wales and Wikimedia UK.
