we're not talking about placement on the wikimedia websites of course, but
rather on the contest websites. That helps us in different ways. First of
all, it helps us of course to get free prizes and sponsorships. Secondly,
it also helps us in showing to participants that we're a serious contest.
We use their reputation also - even though it may be less obvious. But you
are of course right that aligning them with a contest organized by
Wikimedia, is worth something in itself probably.
We also usually offer them that they can state on their own communication
that they support Wiki Loves Monuments. If they do so, that helps us as
well in spreading the word to the right audiences about Wiki Loves
