Description - Call for participation to Wiki Loves Africa 2022.

So the banner is to promote the Wiki Loves Africa photo campaign. It is a call for participation.
It is pretty much unchanged compared to previous years. The contest is open for 2 months (by popular support). We run the banner only in Africa (though the contest is open everywhere). Every year, 90% or so of our participants are new (and some are retained there after !), so running the banner for IP addresses is very important as it serves as recruitment system for new participants. The contest runs over all African countries. In some countries (around 25), local teams will organize activities. They are very much in ask for the banners (both because it helps promote the contest in countries where wikipedia is not very well known) and because it makes them feel we take them seriously (and we do of course...).
I can expect we will collide half of February with Wiki Loves Folklore in African countries (media as well) and in March, we will collide with the Gender Gap campaigns. We’ll go with what is the best for everyone...
