I know that some of you are already very enthusiastically working on
organising WLM 2022, and so is the international team!
The WMF granted our request for Wiki Loves Monuments 2022-2023 so we are
good to go for another year, and we are very happy that this year Manfred
Werner will actively be supporting the international team as our part-time
staff. Manfred was previously already involved in our finances and is a
staff member of Wikimedia Austria, our fiscal sponsor. Welcome Manfred!
In our last bi-weekly meeting, the international team reviewed the timeline
of WLM 2022
and we would like to ask you to do the same. Historically, we organised WLM
in September, but in 2020, because of the pandemic, the competition period
was extended to 3 months (Sept, Oct, Nov).
Last year, the two months in which you can choose any period up to a
maximum of 31 days for your national competition, was September 1st -
October 31st. Would this be okay to do again this year?
And the deadline of December 5th for the submission to the international
jury (sending your national top 10 to the international team), was this a
reasonable time frame?
