Time to shine in Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards: Nominate now

partner of the year awards

It’s again time to shine a light on our Australian partner community and the innovative solutions you bring to customers, through our Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards. It’s been a truly extraordinary 12 months, filled with ups and (lock)downs and a completely new way of working.

Through the last 12 months I’ve been overwhelmed by the commitment, the expertise and the drive of our partners in multiple industry sectors right across the Australian landscape as you help our customers respond, recover and now reimagine the way they operate. It’s this powerful combination that delivers success for all of us – for our customers, for you our partners, and for Microsoft.

I was blown away by the calibre of the 100+ submissions we had in last year’s Awards, and I’m looking forward with eager anticipation to your 2021 applications. We want to see our Australian partners in the spotlight again in 2021 after some impressive results in 2020.

Now’s the time to enter the Microsoft Partner Awards for 2021 which recognise the outstanding success and innovation by partners in more than 100 countries around the world; this is your time to shine. It’s the once-a-year opportunity to gain recognition for the work you do, with the chance to be named Microsoft’s Australia’s Partner of the Year or take out one of the global partner category awards which acknowledge the truly world-leading work that many of you do.

By nominating for the awards you highlight the exceptional work that you and your team have undertaken, the skills you bring to bear and the customer impacts that you catalyse. Winners and finalists are celebrated as part of Microsoft Inspire which brings additional kudos and recognition to you and your teams.

You have until April 21 to get your award submissions to us – and to help you make the most of this opportunity I suggest you checkout the guidance from our judges about what it takes to craft an award winning entry.

Also take the time to check out the award guidelines, the 2021 official rules and all the answers to your frequently asked questions which will give you the best chance of success.

Don’t wait until the last minute to enter the awards, start preparing your submissions now and make 2021 another glittering Partner of the Year success story.
