I’m sure you’ve heard this via the normal channels… the Worldwide Partner Conference is open for award submissions from tomorrow.

Nominate your Solution for a 2009 Microsoft Global Award!
The Awards program is designed to recognize your innovative solutions built on Microsoft technologies. Successful partners in the Awards program will benefit from:

  • Recognition- be recognised in front of your peers and customers, along with photo opportunities with Microsoft Executives – woohoo – seriously though, this is great for PR and for your desk at work
  • Customised Promotions- receive personalised logos, web banners, and custom PR identifying you as an elite Microsoft Partner.
  • Exclusive Access- take advantage of an opportunity to meet with Microsoft executives at an award winner’s luncheon.

How do I do submit something?
Take this unique opportunity to showcase your innovative solutions. You can enter for an award using a web-based tool, between February 17th and April 2nd, 2009. The entry tool and detailed information about the 2009 Awards program can be found here. Winners and finalists will be announced on June 15th, and Partner of the Year awards will be presented to winning partners at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.
