Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)
In September 2010 we organized Wiki Loves Monuments. Wiki Loves Monuments 2010 was a photo contest around national monuments (rijksmonumenten) in the Netherlands. Participants were allowed to send in photos (irrespective of when they were made) of rijksmonumenten together with the rijksmonumentnummer (unique identifier for a national monument) under a free license. The goal of the contest was twofold: First of all, we wanted as much photos of rijksmonumenten as possible to complete the lists existing on the Dutch Wikipedia. Secondly, we tried to make more photographers and monument enthusiasts aware of free licensing and adding information and materials to Wikipedia. That way, there are both a well measureable short term and less well measureable longer term effect. We will describe how we organized this project, the lessons learned and the results of the project.
In September 2011 we're organizing Wiki Loves Monuments 2011. The basic concept is the same as 2010: Get photos of cultural heritage, but the big difference is that the even will be organized in multiple European countries. We will describe how the organization is going and what effects this project already had on heritage projects on different Wikipedia's.
