Hi, hope all fine :) This is to inform you about Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) 2012, a global public photo contest around monuments, organized by Wikimedia chapters and groups. WLM was first organised in Netherlands in 2010, while 18 European countries participated in 2011. In total, more than *165,000* pictures of European monuments were uploaded in 2011.
