Contribute to the enrichment of knowledge on a global scale, and even have the opportunity to win a prize: if it seems to good to be true, then you should really partecipate in Wiki Loves Monuments.
Wiki Loves Monuments is a photographic contest wich involves 25+ countries, and whose aim is to increase the documentation on world cultural heritage on Wikimedia Commons.
It’s very easy to partecipate: make a picture of a monument or a place of cultural interest and upload it to Commons during september 2012. And you can use old photos too: you just have to be the one who made them!
Your pictures will be released under a CC-BY-SA license, and everyone who will need them could use them.
Every nation will select and award the best photos made on his land, wich will automatically partecipate in the international contest.
What do you think of this project? Do you think that a contest is a good way to motivate and encourage people partecipation in wiki projects?
