  • The Wikimedia Foundation approves a resolution enabling new membership models, which allows the possible recognition of Wikimedia CAT as an official organization within the Wikimedia movement.
  • Amical wins this year's Pompeu Fabra Award for Communication and New Technologies "for its relentless work for the consolidation and growth of Wikipedia in Catalan, which has resulted in the Catalan version of this open encyclopedia's ranking among the most prestigious and it's being comparable to, and in some respects better, than the versions in some of the major world languages." See the note in Catalan.
