In September, Wiki Loves Monuments 2015—the largest photography competition in the world—was held. Globally, it attracted more than 6,200 competitors from 33 countries who together uploaded more than 230,000 photographs (see the blog’s previous coverage).
Nepal took part in the competition for the third time in 2015, and it proved to be a success with 107 participants submitting over 1,535 photographs that highlighted the beauty of the country. All have been released under free licenses.
The international winners will be announced in December 2015. Here are the top 10 pictures that will represent Nepal, as decided by our jury:
