>The Jury was pleased by the high quality in both the final bids, and
>required over three hours' discussion to reach the final verdict. We
>considered each bid according to the criteria[3], focussing on
>following factors: Venue, Program, Geo-location & Logistics, Local
>Opportunities, Accommodations, Team & Chapter, and Budget & Finances.
>We found consensus that the Hong Kong bid was the stronger, especially
>because of their strong advance planning; solid support by the local
>Wikimedia Chapter, the community, local government, and a partner
>organisation that is experienced in planning conferences; and their
>good combination of venue and accommodation.

>The Jury has confidence that the Hong Kong bidding team will pull off
>a magnificent Wikimania, and we are pleased for our global community
>to return to Asia once again. With a motivated group of volunteers who
>have experience in organizing smaller Wikimedia activities, and a
>partner with experience in organizing larger-scale events, they have
>found a good mix to create a successful conference. The Jury did also
>identify some weaker points in each the bids, and will be happy to
>share those privately with the teams so that the Hong Kong team can
>use that to their advantage in organizing Wikimania 2013, and the
>other teams can use the feedback to improve their bids for a future
>year.

>We thank all candidate teams - the process is gruelling and requires a
>very substantial time investment. They are all to be commended for
>their submissions.

>To use this soap-box for a moment, as Moderator I would like to remind
>the community that we hope that this time was the last that we use
>this ad-hoc process to decide on the Wikimania venue, and encourage
>everyone to engage with the discussion on Meta[4] about how we might
>select Wikimania 2014 and beyond in a more open, community-led way.
>Please, do join in the discussions.

>Yours,
