Wiki Loves Monuments

The 2016 worldwide photo competition “Wiki Loves Monuments” showed just how active volunteers are in Germany. In Germany alone, 884 users made 39,000 images available within a single month for illustrating Wikipedia articles and lists. The winning international photo also came from Germany. The user “Code” received the honor for his picture of the entrance hall to Berlin’s Landgericht (regional court). In this building, a legal dispute was also settled in 2016 between Wikimedia and a German museum. The matter concerned the digital copyright of works in the public domain.
