Dear WCA Community,
After much deliberation, the WCA Board have come to the conclusion that unfortunately, there will not be an Oceanian Championship held in 2020. We received one application, but the only candidate (New Zealand) was not selected. The application can be seen here.
We would also like to remind everyone that applications for the WCA Continental Championship in 2022 will open on March 1st 2020 for Asia, Europe, and North America, and on June 1, 2020 for Africa, Oceania, and South America. The goal is to announce future championships two years in advance instead of one year to allow for further planning time for organization teams.
Please discuss with the Delegates in your country whether this is something you are willing and able to pursue. Bear in mind that organizing a competition of this size takes a significant amount of time and effort before and during the competition.
