After a four-week period where individuals were invited to submit bids for Wikimania 2009, bidding ended this week. Six official bids were submitted:

2009's field covers five continents, with only Africa and Antarctica without bids (in 2007 and 2008, bids from just three continents were submitted).

Meanwhile, the jury who will decide Wikimania 2009's location was selected this week. It includes:

Five of the thirteen members currently reside in the United States; two members reside in Taiwan, and the other six members each reside in separate countries (Italy, Australia, India, Israel, Japan, and Venezuela). Ten of the members were also members of the Wikimania 2008 jury; Snow was invited to serve on the 2008 jury but was unable to do so; Walsh and Finol are also new to the jury.
