Commons:Wiki Loves Africa 2016/Local events
EN : The Commons:Wiki Loves Africa contest will operate in all African countries (and beyond...)
But in some countries, local organising teams will take charge for driving communications and social media around the competition. They will act as the spokespeople in their country, and will host upload and wiki-takes events during the competition period. In some cases, they will also organise local ceremonies for local winners. Or they will organise meetups, which are important occasions when Wikimedians (users of Wikipedia and the sister projects) come together face-to-face generally in an informal basis. Check the page if you are interested in to get a better understanding of this and want to join an event, or organise a local event. If you have attended a meetup, you can add a little report here (and link to a longer one, if you're in the mood of writing much).
