Woman nominating colleague for an award.

Microsoft partners are at the center of how we deliver technologies and business transformation to customers. Today, more than ever, we need to collaborate and co-innovate to meet our customers’ needs. During this period of tremendous uncertainty around the world, there is also a lot of hope, with incredible examples of partnership and innovation in the face of exceptionally challenging circumstances. We want to hear these incredible stories and also recognize the amazing efforts our partners are taking to create positive impact during this difficult time. As such, we are introducing an additional award category to our Partner of the Year Awards program this year – the Community Response award.

This new award recognizes a partner organization that has made a great difference, providing innovative and unique services or solutions to help solve problems for our customers and community during these unprecedented times. You can find more details about the award and the criteria by visiting the Partner of the Year Awards page.

Additionally, in response to COVID-19 and the impact it’s having on our global partners, we are extending the nomination submission deadline for all of our awards to 11:59 pm Pacific Time (PT), on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

Thank you, and we look forward to reading about all of the great work that our partner community is doing. Together, we achieve more.
