Bangladesh has taken part in the international Wiki loves monuments (world's largest) photography competition for the second time in September 2017. During the competition, a total of 119 Bangladeshi participants uploaded more than 3000+ freely licensed photographs of 200+ different monuments and sites in Wikimedia Commons. Among all the participants, 61% were new to Wikimedia projects and 8% of them were women. Many of the photographs uploaded in the contest are now being used to illustrate Bangladesh related Wikipedia articles. Out of the 3000+ photographs, the jury [note1] of the Wiki Loves Monuments Bangladesh Contest have selected the 10 winning photographs.
All the 10 winning photographs are stunning, extraordinary and, of course, released by their authors underthe freelicense. The global winners will be announced later in this year (December) and we have to wait to see whether any of these 10 winning photographs from Bangladesh makes it to the top list of the global winners' list. Here are the top 10 photographs that will represent Bangladesh as the finalists of the international contest, as decided by our jury:
