Awards_WPC2014Prepare for the WPC Awards: prestige, recognition, and bragging rights

The guidelines for the WPC 2014 Partner of the Year Awards, and related materials, are available to download. Microsoft partners have the opportunity to nominate themselves for one or more awards to showcase their Microsoft-based solutions that benefit customers. These awards celebrate successes and innovations related to partners competencies, cloud technology, entrepreneurial spirit, and sales excellence, and highlight work done by partners in the public sector and citizenship arenas. There is also an award for the United States Country Partner of the Year.

You can begin preparing your award nomination now—the materials you need to get started are available for download at http://www.digitalwpc.com/Awards/Pages/Home.aspx:

  • Award guidelines
  • Official rules
  • Frequently asked questions
  • Advice from judges
  • Tips to create your best entry

The Partner of the Year Awards nomination tool opens on February 7 at 12:01AM Pacific Times and closes on April 11 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.

Good luck—I hope to see many US partners take the stage this July in Washington, DC!
