Online photography competition includes 1916 category

The annual Wiki Loves Monuments competition is open for entries this year, with the Irish leg of the international project including a specific 1916 category.

Amateur and professional photographers are invited to photograph Irish monuments featured here, and upload them to Wikimedia Commons for use by all.

As part of the 2016 contest a specific Easter Rising themed monument list has been announced. 

These include the buildings occupied during the Rising, buildings where the planning of the Rising took place, some birthplaces of the leaders and the railway stations throughout the country that were named in their honour.

Cash prizes, calendars and books are on offer to winners in each of the countries involved. The image above was one of last year's winning entries.
