Free photography contest for Wikipedia

Part of a pan-European contest happening (so far) in 17 countries, in September we will organize in Romania Wiki Loves Monuments. We have rules and prizes, we have a jury and we have the first press release.

What is is about? People are invited to take pictures of monuments in Romania (there is a list with those out of copyright) and upload them on Wikimedia Commons under a Free licende (CC-BY-SA) during September 2011. 10 will be selected, 3 prizes and 7 mentions will be awarded and the 10 winners will also go to the European contest, for a new round, with its different prizes.

Why are we doing this? To enrich Wikipedia with pictures from our country, to teach photographers about sharing, to increase awareness about Wikipedia and Free culture and so on. Like it? Help us by spreading the work and, more important, submitting your photos.
