I second something like this. At the end of the day, Commons doesn't
need yet another bad picture of the Eiffel Tower, but it still needs
more than one picture of that little beautiful church in Southern
Hungary, which only has one picture of the front door. Maybe in the
description of the contest we should emphasize the importance of all
monuments, not just the major ones which are already well described by
the pics that are already on Commons.
