The Guinness World Record holder for the largest photography competition, Wiki Loves Monuments - which challenges photographers from across the globe to submit stunning images showcasing world heritage - has opened, with Malta a participant for the fifth year.
The deadline for submissions is the 30th September. The first prize consists of €400 worth of photographic equipment and services; €300 worth of books is being offered as a second prize; while the third offers €200 in cinema ticket vouchers.
A jury of experts, from the local cultural sector, will adjudicate entries, which will come from over 40 countries, according to the Wikimedia Community Malta President Tony Micallef. The competition started in 2010, and since then, over 2 million images have been submitted.
The judges will determine the winners according to a range of criteria, namely technical quality, originalist and usefulness of the image for Wikipedia, the competition’s organiser.
The winners will be announced in November 2020. All submitted photos will also be exhibited permanently online and at the Valletta Design Cluster throughout November and December. They will also be displayed at Spazju Kreattiv and the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta.
