Abstract
We have discovered 13 new candidate Planetary Nebulae (PNe) in the dwarf irregular galaxy NGC 6822 , increasing its total number to 17 objects. Our sample of candidate PNe is complete down to 3.5 mag below the brightest PN.


Key words: planetary nebulae: general -- local group -- surveys -- catalogs -- galaxies: individual: NGC 6822
