Students from Savremena Gimnazija at the international photo contest

For the third time in a row, students from Savremena Gimnazija have participated in the international photo contest "Wiki Loves Monuments".

"Wiki Loves Monuments" is the world's largest photo contest, which has broken several Guinness World Records and is held every year in September and October.

The students took several hundred photographs

This year, our students photographed monuments in the central streets of Belgrade, and through the lenses of their cameras captured the pedestrian zone protected as a spatial cultural-historical entity, that is, Knez Mihailova Street. During a tour that lasted approximately two hours, the students took several hundred photographs, which they will submit to Wikimedia's multimedia repository and compete with around a hundred other participants.

Valuable cash prizes await the best photographs, and we wish our students the best of luck! The announcement of the winners is expected at the end of October and the beginning of November.

You can learn more about the photo contest on the official competition website:

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
