New and Renewed MVPs Announced!


Today, 966 exemplary community leaders around the world were notified that they have received the MVP Award! These individuals were chosen because they have demonstrated their deep commitment to helping others make the most of their technology, voluntarily sharing their passion and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with the community.


While there are more than 100 million social and technical community members, only a small portion are selected to be recognized as MVPs. Each year, around 4,000 MVPs are honored. They are nominated by Microsoft, other community individuals, or in some cases themselves. Candidates are rigorously evaluated for their technical expertise, community leadership, and voluntary community contributions for the previous year. They come from more than 90 countries, speak over 40 different languages, and are awarded in more than 90 Microsoft technologies. Together, they answer more than 10 million questions a year!


MVPs are recognized each quarter for this annual award, which continues to grow and evolve to reflect the development of Microsoft technologies.


Congratulations to the new MVPs, and welcome back to renewed MVPs. We are very excited to recognize your amazing accomplishments!

  1. Great achievements for all, whether new or renewed.  Well done to everyone.

    Is there many chance of a list of those made that have been rewarded by discipline / technology.  Community pillars are great learning resources, so it'll be handy to know who to follow.
