> Hi Everyone,
> As we all know, Kenya participated in the Wiki Loves Monuments Contest
> that concluded recently. We had 97 images uploaded to Commons of Kenyan
> Monuments cutting across  Kenya's diverse geography. Surprising to all of
> us, we had images from as far as Nyeri and  Mombasa
> A jury of 3 was selected to help judge the images that would participate
> in the International Contest. The Jury was Diverse and had consisted of
> memvsr from: Wikimedia France, Wikimedia Ghana(Unchapter) and Wikimedia
> Kenya.
> The judging criteria involved each member of the Jury selecting his/her
> top 10 best images . After which each member was then allowed to score each
> image he/she had selected with 10points for best image and 1 point for the
> least. The points across all the images were then summed and the final
> score for each image used to select the final images . Incase of a tie in
> points, the image that was voted by the most number of Jury members was
> given a higher weight and so forth.
> Here are the Top 10 Images that would compete in the International Contest:
