Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?

WLM aims to collect quality pictures on Kenya's cultural heritage and monuments to participate in the WLM 2020 contest in Kenya. It is important to our community in that the initiative promotes the preservation and appreciation of our heritage and vast monuments within the country.

2. How will you let people know about the contest?

We will send emails about the contest to our already existing mailing list which includes everyone who participated in the Wiki Loves Monuments 2020 contest and we shall use social medias like WhatsApp,Twitter and Facebook. We shall also use the our networks to spread the word.

3. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

A local jury team of 3 judges will be selected to choose the best photos from Kenya which will be forwarded to the international team of Wiki Loves Monuments and we shall award the best 3 photos with prizes.

4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?

We have provided a list heritage sites and monuments in our landing page and will also share the same in our outreach activities.

5. Are you running any in-person events or activities? If so, you will need to complete the steps outlined on the Risk Assessment protocol related to COVID-19. When you have completed these steps, please provide a link to your completed copy of the risk assessment tool below:

We have decided that we will follow the procedure where we will make prepayments for individuals to the respective sites and provide the list of participants to the venues.

The lock-down and restrictions on social gatherings has been significantly eased in Kenya, which will allow individual photo hunts while still complying with the COVID-19 regulations.
