Photographing Wales’ heritage 2022

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.

In 2019, Wales uploaded 6,228 images.  2020’s images can be found here:

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.

Wales also takes part in WikiLoves Earth, and this year came 2nd after 38 other nations, with 5,040 images.
