How to beat yourself

It took a while, but finally the last year edition of the Wiki Loves Monuments free photography contest was officially recognized as a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest photography competition, with 168,208 from over 5,400 participants.

All nice and fine, but this record is not poised to last long, it will be broken by this year's edition of the same Wiki Loves Monuments, with more than double number of photos and almost triple number of participants. That's is, beating our own record by a large margin. Hopefully, this time it will be officially recognized faster, since the procedures started much eariler. And remember, it is a free culture project, run entirely by volunteers, yay for community!
