Hi all, Today at 1 July the photo contest Wiki Loves Public Space started in Belgium. This year is the first year in what we have during the full Summer freedom of panorama <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_panorama> in Belgium ( info <https://be.wikimedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_panorama>), which means that modern buildings and artworks in the public space can be photographed and freely be published. For years it was not possible to illustrate articles with photos of modern buildings and artworks in the public space due the limitations of the Belgian copyright law. To celebrate this freedom and to compensate the many years of not being allowed to upload photos of these Belgian subjects (and thus bare articles), we organise this photo contest.
During the Summer months July and August 2017 you can participate by uploading your photos from modern buildings, public artworks, heritage monuments and memorials, present in the public space in Belgium. Also photos you made earlier are welcome! See for more information about how to participate at: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Public_Space_2017_in_Belgium This photo contest is supported by Wikimedia Belgium <https://be.wikimedia.org>.
