Wiki Loves Monuments in Romania

Friday, September 28, 2012

Came across an article here in Romanian on this month's drive for photographs of historical monuments. In Romania there are about 30,000 historical monuments (29,585 to be exact, not sure where the number comes from) and 3,629 of them have photographs in Wikipedia, 994 have geographical coordinates and 175 have information on the architect.

Nearing the end of the month 5,800 images have been sent in, and if there are not too many duplicates this may move the ratio of monuments with pictures from ten percent to twenty.

There is also a monetary incentive here: ten photographers will receive a prize of 600 lei, or $170 USD.
