I see the contest is over now, will there be another one coming up?


I was quite disappointed by the limited participation of Cameroom to the photo contest. Given the effort already been done in that country to train editors and to promote the project, I expected more input.

While trying to upload some pictures to https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Afripedia_Douala I'm starting to understand at least one part of the issue. Internet connections are really bad. Very high ping times, both at the French institute as well as in the hotel I'm staying in now, which I can't easily consider cheap (at least in terms of pricing).

Is there a robust way to upload pictures to Commons over bad internet connections?

Facebook and G+ Android apps have done a fairly good job at uploading pictures automatically, but now I still need to first download them to my laptop and then upload them through the Upload Wizard, which is failing me. Using the Commons Android app is not a good alternative from the hotel connection because it wants me to enter a user/pass combination too often on my phone.
