European Monument Photos

Marydee Ojala @ 2:50 pm

This looks like fun. Wiki Loves Monuments, a photo contest organized by Wikipedia, invites people to take, upload, and share photos of monuments located in 17 European countries during the month of September 2011. Europeana has announced that is is a sponsor for one of the 12 prizes for best photo and is offering a special competition and award for a photo of an Art Nouveau monument.

I’m unclear on two points. If I’m not a resident of one of the European countries, does a photo of a monument in one of the countries still qualify? Are libraries monuments? If they’re counting parks and archaeological sites, I’m assuming libraries count.

If some good photos of libraries surface, maybe we can show them during Internet Librarian International! That would be even more fun.

  1. Hi,
    For the Europeana Art Nouveau competition at least your country of residence wouldn’t matter at all. The motif should be a Europeana Art Nouveau (Jugendstil, Modernisme, Stile Liberty etc.) building though.

    The WLM main contest I think it’s best you check the rules on their sites. However I believe any man-made monument in the wider sense would qualify. Including library buildings!
