Citizen Memorials
Description:
Many people have left a significant impact on a community, friends, and loved ones to have had a permanent memorial erected in their honour. This category is dedicated to those places around the world where you find a memorial of some kind.
Expanded Description:
People often are touched by somebody special and frequently they want to recognize that person’s influence on a community by erecting a permanent memorial to that person.

At times family and friends commemorate people who may have not, on the surface, had large impact on a community; nevertheless these types of memorials are just as important. The goal of this category is to capture these permanent memorials around the world.

Memorials are as unique as the person they honour. It could be a plaque, a sign, a cenotaph, a cairn, or some other unique object. However, to meet the requirements of this category it must be a permanent object.

Memorials are generally done posthumously, however occasionally commemorative markers are installed during the life time of the person or group honoured. Both types are accepted in this category.

Memorials have different names depending on the design. While the category does not distinguished between the various types, below is a reference to what they could be called.

Memorial: Something designed to preserve the memory of a person.

Cairn: A heap of stones set up as a landmark, monument, etc.

Monolith: An obelisk, column, large statue, etc., formed of a single block of stone.

Obelisk: A tapering, four-sided shaft of stone, usually monolithic and having a pyramidal apex.

Plaque: An inscribed commemorative tablet, usually of metal placed on a building, monument, or the like.
