Heartiest congratulations to all those who participated in Wiki Loves Monument 2021, and a special wave to those who figured in the awards. :)

Let us remember that having photos of our monuments in the Commons is just the first step and that there is work ahead — to write articles in every language on each of these monuments — before we can stand back and feel our job is done. :)

Great outcome and well done to the organisers of Wiki Loves Monument 2021.
