Hi all,

Here is some information about the announcement of the results.

The announcement will be done on December 14. The exact time of it is
to be determined in the next hours, but it's most likely going to be
in early afternoon UTC.

==Social media==
Our Twitter and Instagram accounts will start a countdown some time
early morning in UTC (this can be middle of the night in Europe). As
soon as the first one goes out, we will notify you here. Follow us in
social media if that's your thing:


We are working with partners to make sure that the impact of the blog
post and social media coverage gets amplified through their help.
Please make sure you engage your local partners, no matter what we do
in the international team, we can't have the impact that 50+ local
organizers can have through their connections. :)

==Blog post==
There will be a blog post on and This will go live as soon as the winner is
announced in Twitter and Instagram.

There is a tentative plan to have a banner on Wikimedia projects,
similar to the one we had last year, that would indicate the results
are announced and would send the users to one of the blog posts.

==Team mode==
It's fair to say that we're all quite excited and we all wish we had 1
more month ahead of us. ;) Things are very tight on our end but we are
doing all we can (with the help of partners, WMF, etc.) to prepare for
a good announcement day.

Comments and questions are welcome, though I will be a bit slow to
respond (but others may jump in).
