2,700 photos of Greek monuments to the international photo contest “Wiki Loves Monuments”

More than 2,700 photos of Greek monuments were posted on Wikimedia Commons during the international photo contest “Wiki Loves Monuments.”

Greece participated for the first time in the competition, with an initiative of the Wikimedia Community User Group Greece.

Specifically, more than 130 photographers uploaded 2,720 photos until September 30, the closing day of the contest.

The photo committee is called to select the best ones.

During the competition, three “photo strolls” were held in Athens, Thessaloniki and Corfu, in cooperation with organizations and groups, during which the photographers had the opportunity to tour monuments of Greece and learn their history.
