Photo of Armenian Church wins the “WIKI LOVES MONUMENTS” contest

Out of more than 230,000 submissions from nearly 7,700 participants, fifteen winning images were announced today in the eleventh annual “Wiki Loves Monuments” photography contest (March 18, 2021)

The photo of Armenian Church of Saint John (Surb Hovhannes) located in Iran, has come in the first place of this year’s “Wiki Loves Monuments”

“This image is superbly stunning” – one jury member said of this snapshot of Iran’s Armenian Saint John Church, that won first place in this year’s competition. They continued: “The crystalline, geometric and pristine and jewel-like human-made forms of this church look like they are floating on a snow covered space-time continuum gravitational field.”
