For the third year Wikimedia Community Ireland will be running this photography contest in conjunction with the international contest. Amateur and professional photographers are invited to photograph Ireland’s monuments found on the wikilovesmonuments site and upload them to Wikimedia Commons for use by all. There is a full list of monuments arranged by county.

As part of the 2016 contest Wikimedia will celebrate the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising with a special 1916 themed monument list. These monuments 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. Separate prizes will be awarded for this part of the contest
