Wiki Loves Monuments

From October 1st to October 30th, 2020, Wikimedia Canada is inviting you to participate in Wiki Loves Monuments, the largest international photographic competition in the world. It aims at promoting heritage sites around the world. Everybody can participate. You are invited to take pictures of heritage sites in Canada and to upload the best ones on Wikimedia Commons during the month of October.

In Canada, more than 12,000 heritage sites are reportoried by Parks Canada. The goal of this contest is to obtain pictures under a free licence that can be used on the Wikipedia articles about them. The free licence also allows the pictures to be reused elsewhere than Wikipedia.

The pictures can be taken at any time, but must be uploaded in October to be eligible for the contest.

COVID-19 Situation


As you are all aware, COVID-19 is a day-to-day situation and we were informed by the Wikimedia Foundation that all in-person activities funded by them must be cancelled, postponed or moved to virtual events effective immediately and until further notice.

From the Wikimedia Foundation: "Our first priority is the health and safety of you, your Wikimedia community, and the general public health. Global health guidance indicated that the more quickly the world responds to a pandemic, the better off the outcomes. In order to safeguard free knowledge, we must also prioritize the well-being of the people who make it possible."

Wikimedia Canada recognizes the efforts of all the volunteers of the Wikimedia movement in Canada. At this point, Wikimedia Canada is also cancelling or postponing all in-person activities organized or funded by the Chapter until further notice.

We ask all volunteers in Canada to do the same with the activities that they are organizing, and to abide by the directives of their respective provinces regarding health, safety and public events.

Thank you all for your understanding.

If you have any concerns, please communicate with us at info@wikimedia.ca.
