In the midst of long-term unrest, Ukrainian Wikimedians took part in Wiki Loves Monuments—a worldwide photo competition that aims to add to the world’s coverage of cultural heritage monuments

The 232 Ukrainian participants uploaded more than 41,000 images, the most of any participating country, of about 14,000 monuments. 3,334 of these were being shot for the first time.

The award ceremony was held on November 21 in the museum of the Kiev Monastery of the Caves, a newly minted UNESCO World Heritage Site. The organizers recognized the best ten photos, seen below; the best picture from each oblast (region, or province); and the individuals with the largest number of monuments captured. An exhibition of the top photos was held in the Great Belfrey.
