Dear Wikimedians,

On the recommendation of the Wikimania 2015 selection Jury Committee, we have 
accepted the proposal from Mexico DF to host. The proposal will be further 
vetted by the WMF staff in the coming month, after which time we hope to 
confirm the award. Please join us in congratulating Wikimedia Mexico!

We would also like to thank the teams from Cape Town and Monastir as well for 
all their effort in putting together excellent proposals for our consideration. 
As a volunteer-led movement, it is hugely encouraging to have so many who want 
to support Wikimania. The bidding process requires a substantial time 
investment, and we are most grateful for every team’s hard work.

For those of you who are considering hosting in future years, we expect to 
issue the Request for Proposals  for 2016 by September this year.
