Everyday Preservationist Photo Contest | World Monuments Fund

World Monuments Fund invites you to vote for your favorite photo in our Everyday Preservationist Photo Contest.

The photos in this gallery were submitted by photographers of all levels to advocate for everyday preservation. World Monuments Fund sends preservation experts to endangered sites all over the world, but there are things we can do closer to home to help save the world’s most treasured places. Becoming an everyday preservationist is as easy as sharing something special about your hometown, a favorite vacation spot, or someplace you’ve always wanted to visit.

The contest will produce fifteen semi-finalists and five winners. You may vote once in each of five everyday preservation categories:

  • Appreciation
  • Adaptive Reuse
  • Sensitive Urban Development
  • Thoughtful Tourism
  • Traditional Building Materials


Photo Submission Period: July 1-31
Public Voting Period: July 1-August 15
Judging: August 16-September 1
Winners Announced: September 9
