Wiki Loves Monuments 2016 Results

After going through more than 37,000 images, the results for Wiki Loves Monuments have finally been announced. To summarise, we received 37,000+ images images in this edition from 1784 participants. 1500+ participants contributed to the movement for the first time during the contest. From the 37,000+ images we received, 1300 images are already been used in Wikipedia and it sister projects. Inspite of the contest ending, the flow of knowledge doesn’t end here, there are plenty of unused ASI monument images which is now available to utilize them across the movement. The WLM India core team which comprised of Abhinav Srivastava,Kiran RaviKumar,Karthik Nadar,Naveen Francis,Sanket Oswal,Santosh Shringare and Yohann Thomas show their gratitude to the jury members, the volunteers & the participants who made this successful. Also, the organizers want to thank Wikimedia Foundation for funding, Wikimedia India Chapter for joining hands and WLM International team for the support received throughout the competition.
