Wiki Loves Africa 2022/Participating communities
It should be noted that Wiki Loves Africa runs in EVERY African country (and beyond !). In some countries, there is a wikipedian team willing to hosts event and activities. If that's your case, please add your country below. But if your country is not listed here and you still want to participate to Wiki Loves Africa and submit pictures, please go ahead!
Activities for organizing teamsEdit
We really look forward to working with you on this project and getting some great results!
If you are interested in hosting events around the project then and need funding, submit a rapid grant (see the sessions below for guidance sessions).
Consult this page for how to apply for a Rapid Grant and plan for your events. On it you will find helpful resources to support your Wiki Loves Africa local participating communities as you:

It is not mandatory to run a pretty successful activity, however that could boost your range and impact. You can apply for Rapid Grants offered by the Wikimedia Foundation at Project/Rapid.
Mind the deadline for applications. You should aim to submit from the 1st till the 15th Dec.

As an organizing team, you may decide to organize a National best images selection process, with national winners. Most organizing teams do that. But this is not mandatory. Unlike Wiki Loves Monument, the national selections and the international selection are independent.
So if you want to organize a best national images selection, a ceremony, gifts for national winners, certificate... please do. It is great. But it is also fine to not have a national winner selection. Some countries do not have enough volunteers to run a selection process and ceremony. This is absolutely fine. Please do what is best for you.
If you want to organize a national selection process, please check these Jury process guidelines.
You can see national winners of 2021.
