Architecture, Landscape, Monuments, Main Entrances, Libraries and other important buildings. All the subjects have articles on wikipedia but no photo. These institutions are;

Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

I have announced this project on the Nigeria Wikimedia meta page link [1]

4. How will you let participants know about the photowalk? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

5. What is the plan to ensure images will be used on Wikimedia projects?

There will be an edit-a-thon right after each photowalk to link photos to existing articles

6. Do participants have the equipment or skills needed to participate and contribute high quality content? If not, how will you support them?

Only 2 camera is available. We will rent 3 more for other participants. there will be a brief training on good photography and how to navigate Wikimedia Commons

7. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

I am with full assurance that once the project is completed, the results will serve beyond Wikimedia Commons and the English Wikimedia as many other published Language pages will use the photos to update their articles.
