Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM) is a public photo competition around cultural heritage monuments, organized by Wikimedia chapters and groups.
In 2010 it was organised in the Netherlands, and was followed by a Europe-wide 2011 edition. Ever since 2012 the competition is organized annually in countries across the world! This is the biggest photography competition in the world, recognized by the Guinness Book of Records.
Here are the winning Canadian photos from the 2020 edition:

The aim of the contest is to ask the general public—readers and users of Wikipedia, photographers, hobbyists, etc.—to take pictures of cultural heritage monuments and upload them to Wikimedia Commons for use on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.
