Congratulations Wikimedia Sweden!
WMSE is one of the strongest and most creative chapters and I'm sure
Wikimania 2019 will be an amazing event!

*All,On behalf of the Wikimania Steering Committee and the Wikimedia
Foundation, I am pleased to announce that we have decided to have Wikimania
located in Sweden in 2019. The proposal
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2019_bids/Sweden> from the
Wikimedia Sweden chapter was accepted. The committee appreciates and values
the long standing interest of Wikimania Sweden to host an event, and we
believe that hosting Wikimania will be an opportunity to boost Wikimedia
projects there with a specific focus on public art, a field in which the
Swedish Sverige team has been particularly active. The exact location of
the conference will be confirmed at a later date.The Wikimania Committee
reviewed and discussed four very strong proposals
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2019> to host Wikimania in 2019.
We would also like to thank the proposers from Sweden, Armenia, Perth, and
Prague for all their efforts in putting together materials for our
consideration and their time spent discussing the possibilities. It is very
encouraging to have so much interest from our community from individuals
who wish to lead and contribute to Wikimania.Please join us in
congratulating the Wikimedia Wikimedia Sverige!
