Welcome to the official site of Wiki Loves Monuments Antarctica.
Wiki Loves Monuments is the world’s largest photo contest and, in its last edition, it reached to 353,768 participating images, taken by more than 15,000 contestants in all over the world.
In 2013, Wiki Loves Monuments hopes to reach to every corner of the world and Antarctica is no exception. Despite having no permanent population, Antarctica has several sites that commemorate the attempts of exploration and research carried out by the international community over the past centuries. Crosses remembering deceased people, old huts in inhospitable places or marks that indicate landings indicate that activity.
Unlike other local versions, Wiki Loves Monuments Antarctica is a competition organized collectively by volunteers from different countries, in line with the spirit of international collaboration established by the Antarctic Treaty. The contest is coordinated by Wikimedia Argentina, with the support of the Secretariat of the Antarctic Treaty.
On September 1st, Wiki Loves Monuments starts again. You will be able to upload your Antarctic monuments pictures before September 30th. Also, you can see all the participating countries in the international website of the contest.
