COVID-19 pandemic. It was glad that to see various suggestions coming up
regarding how to go about it. To facilitate the same, the International
Team will be conducting two office hour sessions on 6 & 7 June 2020, in
various time slots, making for people across the to take part and share
their ideas. During these sessions, we will start off with WLM 2019
surveys, how do we see Wiki Loves Monuments as an international competition
in 2020, and about organising Wiki Loves Monuments as national competition
- various potential challenges, opportunities, and ways of doing it. Inputs
shared during these sessions will be crucial in making a decision regarding
organising WLM 2020.

Over 17,000 images were submitted to Wiki Loves Africa this year ... this is due, in main, to the hard work of volunteers and usergroups across Africa. Thank you for those that have been involved so far!!
It is also a lot of images to judge. We want to get a global team together to go through the entries as a first review - to weed out the selfies, watermarked and time stamped images, etc…
Please, if you love photography and images, and have time between the 8th and 18th May 2020, volunteer to be on the First Review Team. Go to this form to find more information and enter your details here: https://forms.gle/aSLfLZfXDaADT7NMA <https://forms.gle/aSLfLZfXDaADT7NMA>
