Wikimedia tells Israelis to photograph heritage sites

As part of Wikipedia’s international campaign to attract the most striking photographs of monuments around the world, Wikimedia Israel is calling upon members of the public to head to the country’s heritage sites with their cameras in hand.

For the fourth year in a row, Wikimedia Israel is hosting a competition in which both amateur and professional photographers can win prizes for pictures of any national heritage site in Israel. Contenders can use a special upload wizard on Wikimedia Commons to submit their photos from now through October 13. While the best three photos will earn monetary prizes – NIS 3,000, NIS 2,000 and NIS 1,000 – the top 10 will be sent on to Wikipedia’s international Wiki Loves Monuments competition, the Israeli branch said.
