“Wiki loves monuments” is a photography contest organized by the Wikimedia foundation. It “started in 2010 as a photo competition in one country (Netherlands) and turned into a European competition in 2011. 18 countries participated in the organization and over 165.000 photos were contributed by over 5000 (mostly new) users. Of these 160.000 photos 169 finalists were selected for the European jury.” (source:http://wikilovesmonuments.eu)
The jury selected 11 runners up and 1 winner to be bundled in a calendar. The winner is from Romania, is called Mihai Petre, and the picture shows the Chiajna Monastery at the outskirts of Bucharest.
