Hi Roel,
I am afraid I don't really understand what you mean by "to give (...)
Admin control to manage submissions".

There is no way that the Wiki Loves Monuments community -- which in
itself is much smaller than the wider community of Wikimedia Commons
-- can "give" anybody any rights on the latter project.

Of course, we have been assigning user rights in the past month or two
to many people, especially UploadCampaign editor rights, but our
community as such cannot guarantee the local organisers any additional
rights on Commons.

I can understand how tedious it is to have to request (un)deletions
for a lot of pictures, but I am afraid there is very little we can do
about it. If you'd like to become an administrator on Commons (even
just for a temporary period), there is no other way to do that than to
start an RfA on the appropriate page on that project.

PS I have just disabled the CentralNotice banners for the Philippines;
the campaign is also no longer categorising the photos into
[[Category:Images from Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 in the Philippines]].
