As you may know, Wikimedia Portugal (WMPT) took part in WLM in 2011. A
team of four ended up making a very successful event with very little money!
However, early this year, they said they would not be available to
continue and organize the 2012 edition of WLM.
By them, João Miguel Vasconcelos and I stepped forward. However, we
clearly underestimated the workload involved, as well as the time we
both could dedicate to this undertaking. Furthermore, unlike last year,
WMPT community seems much less enthusiastic about WLM.
So, we discussed the matter internally, and have decided not to hold WLM
2012 in Portugal.
I'm sorry to be giving such a bad news, but it is better to announced it
now, than to keep postponing it one more month.
Thanks & regards,
Manuel de Sousa

year, it would be possible to make another edition, even if it wasn't
You are of course welcome to translate WLM-ES website into portuguese,
for those who decide to cross the border in order to participate, but I
find sad that they can't take part in WLM by photographing their own
