MVP Links


The MVP Award was established by Microsoft as a way to award amazing individuals for their outstanding contributions in a wide range of community activities. From newsgroup to top user group, Web sites and message boards worldwide, MVP status is awarded to the most active online community “gurus” for their technical expertise, voluntary willingness to share their experience and commitment to helping others realize their potential within Microsoft technical communities.

The Microsoft MVP Program is a worldwide award and recognition program that strives to identify amazing individuals in technical communities around the globe who share a passion for technology and the spirit of community. Microsoft MVPs are recognized for both their demonstrated practical expertise and willingness to share their experience with peers in Microsoft technical communities.

Who are Microsoft MVPs?
Microsoft MVPs are a diverse group of individuals who are:

    • Recognized: They are acknowledged by peers and also by Microsoft for their active participation in Microsoft technical communities around the globe.
    • Credible: They have demonstrated practical expertise providing the highest quality information and content.
    • Accessible: They are active technical community leaders sharing their experience with peers.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Microsoft MVP Program

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers. Feel free to contact the Microsoft MVP Program for any questions, comments, or suggestions about the MVP Program.

What is the Microsoft MVP award?
The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is an annual award that is given to outstanding members of Microsoft's peer-to-peer communities.

Why does the award exist?
Microsoft believes that a robust, interactive user community is key to helping customers maximize the solutions and benefits from their software investments. The MVP Award is the way Microsoft recognizes those participants who have made a highly positive impact in the technical and product communities they participate in. Microsoft wants community participants and leaders to know that their contributions are greatly appreciated. The MVP Award exists as a way to reach out to and thank outstanding members for their past participation and willingness to help others in these communities.

How does Microsoft award the MVPs?
An internal committee of professionals from various groups at Microsoft selects the annual MVP Award winner from a group of nominees.

Are Microsoft MVPs experts in all Microsoft technologies and products?
No. Although many MVPs have in-depth knowledge of more than one product or technology, none of them are experts in all Microsoft technologies or products.

Do Microsoft MVPs receive any payment from Microsoft?
No. Microsoft does provide a small award of software, but MVPs do not receive any monetary payment from the Microsoft MVP Program.

How long does the Microsoft MVP Award last?
The MVP Award is given each year for an individual past participation in a Microsoft technical community. The period between awards is considered an award year during which award recipients are free to refer to themselves as a Microsoft MVP and enjoy all other privileges included with the award.

What does Microsoft expect of its MVPs?
Because the MVP Award is an award-based program whose criteria are based on past contributions, Microsoft has no expectations of MVPs beyond the expectations of courtesy, professionalism, and adherence to the community rules that we ask of all Microsoft community members.

How can I become a Microsoft MVP?
There is no set formula, script, or plan you can follow that will guarantee that you will receive an award. If you have recently begun participating in a Microsoft peer-based community, do not expect to move into a leadership role overnight. Earning the respect of your peers and earning recognition from Microsoft takes time. If you have been participating for a while, you may already be on your way to achieving MVP status.
