#wikilovesmonuments and there are plenty of them

The 2011 is going places; last year half the monuments of the Netherlands had their pictures taken and this year cameras are to be aimed at the monuments of Europe. There is a beautiful new logo, the planning is already under way for some time.

September is the month when everything will be ready and the current planning can be found on Commons. Obviously you can take pictures already but for these pictures to be part of the photo competition, they have to be uploaded in September.

Monuments are not only to be found in the countries with chapters. The fact that lists with monuments in Belgium are compiled is quite exciting. Then again, many people visit Belgium for fun, history and Trappist so why not bring a camera?

In the Netherlands Wiki loves Monuments will end with a conference in November, there will be presentations, prizes and the opportunity to meet fellow Wikimedians. I hope and expect that similar fun will be had in most of Europe.
