Wiki loves monuments II

September has come and gone and #Commons has already been enriched with over 11.111 images of Dutch National monuments. It is still the 30th of September, there are a few more hours for people to upload their pictures.

Many Dutch Wikipedians have worked hard to ensure that things went smoothly. The pictures that were uploaded to Flickr have been continuously uploaded to Commons. And once the clock strikes midnight in the Netherlands, it will be a big job to decide on the best pictures that will be considered for a prize. It will also be a big undertaking to give these pictures a home in an article.

One big achievement has been reached: this has become a big, relevant collection of contemporary pictures of Dutch monuments with annotations and, they are freely licensed to boot.
