Basically that would already be a local competition :) You don't need an
extensive prize system for your country (although I'd recommand at least a
small prize) and we can even help with funding that if needed (at least for
a few hundred euros). But no matter what, letting Portugal participate will
involve some work - although not much. Hence also my question what is the
problem part - perhaps it is something that can easily be solved.

> Dear all,
> As you may know, Wikimedia Portugal (WMPT) took part in WLM in 2011. A
> team of four ended up making a very successful event with very little money!
> However, early this year, they said they would not be available to
> continue and organize the 2012 edition of WLM.
> By them, João Miguel Vasconcelos and I stepped forward. However, we
> clearly underestimated the workload involved, as well as the time we both
> could dedicate to this undertaking. Furthermore, unlike last year, WMPT
> community seems much less enthusiastic about WLM.
> So, we discussed the matter internally, and have decided not to hold WLM
> 2012 in Portugal.
> I'm sorry to be giving such a bad news, but it is better to announced it
> now, than to keep postponing it one more month.
> Thanks & regards,
