Church St. John of Nepomuk, 1st place, Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, Poland

Photographers in Poland were extremely busy in September uploading photographs for the national Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 contest. Poland saw the most submissions, with over 51,000 images uploaded by 680 photographers.

The top ten images include an array of national monuments, from a peaceful park bridge to a German concentration camp in the city of Lubin. First place was awarded to a photograph of the Church St. John of Nepomuk; second place went to the intricate golden ceiling of the main refectory of the Lubiaz Abbey; and the castle ruins at Ogrodzieniec won third prize.

Be sure to check out the other winning photographs from Poland, and read here tomorrow as we announce the grand prize photograph and the other winning images.
