Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Campaign in Albania and Kosovo, 2022
August 1-31, 2022, WoALUG developed the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Campaign in Albania and Kosovo. Besides the international participation, WoALUG also organized it locally. Rules for our context were adopted locally, having a one-day edit-a-thon happening on the same day, online and offline, in Tirana and Prishtina.
The edit-a-thon took place on August 27, and people joined in enriching the articles. Edit-a-thon started with introducing the campaign and training people on how to add pictures through the visual and source editors.

Wikivoyage Campaign and Edit-a-thon in Novobërda
In parallel with the WPWP campaign during the month of August, WoALUG held an online Wikivoyage campaign. Besides the online participation, WoALUG organized an edit-a-thon in Novobërda, Kosovo.
The edit-a-thon took place on August 23rd, and we had participation from locals who know the area and were ready to contribute. This offline edit-a-thon was designed to create and improve the content of Kosovo tourist locations in the free tourist guide Wikivoyage by adding information, creating and translating articles, and uploading photos to Wikimedia Commons.
