Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2022 in the Philippines (WPWP Campaign PH) is a local campaign of Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP), an annual campaign where Wikipedians across Wikipedia language projects and communities add photos to Wikipedia articles lacking images, to support the international organizers and help promote in the Philippines the use of digital media files, on the eight (8) Philippine-language based Wikipedia editions and others in the incubation phase. Photos help to grasp the reader's attention better than a wall of text, illustrate content, and make the article more instructive and engaging for readers.

Thousands of images have been donated and contributed to Wikipedia Commons via various advocacy programs, photowalks, and contests including international photography contests such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc. Yet relatively few of these photos have been used on Wikipedia articles. Today, the Wikimedia Commons hosts millions of photo images but only a tiny portion of these have been used on Wikipedia article pages. This is a huge gap that this project aims at bridging.
