Every two years, World Monuments Fund (WMF) accepts new nominations to the World Monuments Watch. Nearly 700 sites on all seven continents have been included in the nine Watch cycles since 1996. Watch listing provides an opportunity for sites and their nominators to raise public awareness, foster local participation, advance innovation and collaboration, and demonstrate effective solutions.
The World Monuments Watch calls international attention to cultural heritage around the world that is at risk from the forces of nature and the impact of social, political, and economic change. From archaeological sites to iconic architecture, cultural landscapes to historic urban centers, the Watch identifies places of significance in need of timely action.
Deadline for nominations is March 1, 2013.
