Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest around cultural heritage monuments in September. Starting from the Netherlands in 2010 and organized on a European level in 2011 and global level in 2012!
This year, West Bengal Wikimedians and Punjabi Wikimedians are jointly organizing Wiki Loves Monuments in India. We are focusing on ASI recognized monuments of national importance and state protected monuments for this year.

Everybody can participate and improve Wikipedia in their local and regional neighborhood. Cultural heritage is everywhere around you, you just need to look and learn!

In every participating country you can win awards, and the best photos in each country continues to the international jury – which will select the best monument photos in 2018.
