Introducción

Wikimania 2022

Wikimanía: ¡La edición del festival! tendrá lugar del 11 al 14 de agosto de 2022. Wikimanía es la conferencia anual del movimiento Wikimedia que celebra todos los proyectos de conocimiento libre que son posibles gracias a la comunidad de voluntarios. El mayor encuentro del movimiento Wikimedia, la Wikimanía de este año, reunirá a más wikimedistas que nunca, de forma virtual y con partes presenciales, para crear, celebrar y conectar.

El tema de la Wikimanía virtual de este año es "La edición del festival". Nos uniremos para visibilizar proyectos y grupos del movimiento y celebrar la diversidad de nuestra amplia comunidad.

Wikimanía: ¡La edición del festival! se puede resumir en tres palabras: será entretenida, viva y vibrante; será regional, arrojando luz sobre las comunidades de todo el movimiento a través de las festividades; y dará la bienvenida a los recién llegados, suscitando un espacio seguro que ilumine e inspire para los que asistan por primera vez.

  • Next steps after resubmissions
  • What if I don’t get funded
  • How long does it take to receive funds

Can applicants for individual scholarships edit their application after submission?

Unfortunately not. It is recommended that applicants draft their application carefully and ensure they say everything they need to say before submission. However, additional information can be submitted by applicants to wikimania@wikimedia.org where a member of the Core Organizing Team or Wikimedia Foundation staff will note the new information on the user's application. Please do not submit an application twice; this creates a lot of additional work for reviewers.
