  1. Look for an object to photograph. Suggestions on objects to photograph can be found below.
  2. Take some pictures!
  3. Upload the image by using one of the methods below

Use the highest possible resolution on your camera. There is no upper limit on the size of the photo. Feel free to take various images of the same object with different perspectives and also of certain interesting details (there is no limit on the number of images you can compete with).

Recommended method

We recommend method to upload via one of the lists on Wikipedia below to automatically pass on correct data for the object during the upload.

Have you for example taken an image of Svängsta church in Blekinge county, first on Wikipedia find List of church buildings in Blekinge county.

Then upload the image by clicking on the Add image icon in the lists. If an image already exist in the list click on the Add another image icon below it.

You need to be logged on to your account on Wikimedia Commons during the upload of the image. If you do not have an account on Commons you will be able to register it during the upload. The registration just takes a minute and we do not collect data about you.

Advanced method, directly via upload form:

Keep the ID-number for the object you are uploading nearby as it will be required when filling out the upload form. The ID-number is used to identify the object and for matching against the lists created on Swedish Wikipedia. Check here to learn how to find the ID-number for the object.

You need to be logged on to your account on Wikimedia Commons during the upload of the image. If you do not have an account on Commons you will be able to register it during the upload. The registration just takes a minute and we do not collect data about you.

All images on Common are placed in categories for easier access. If needed, please add more categories when you upload the images. For most cities there is a category which is labelled along the lines of Buildings in Uppsala or for municipalities without larger cities or for buildings in the country-side the label would be Buildings in Uppsala Municipality. Many famous buildings and churches already have their own categories which may also be worth looking for.
