There is some financial support available via OSM (who manages the finances of the Joomla! project), to help JoomlaDay organizers, but these events would not happen if it was not for the hard work, enthusiasm and participation of the local Joomla! communities, and the generosity of their sponsors.
2013 kicked off with a JoomlaDay in Melbourne, Australia.
All indications are that the event was a great success, with a good mix of local and international guests. Videos of the event should be available online soon.
