It’s that time again – your opportunity to gain fame and fortune for your business and for the great projects you have done in the Australian education market this year. Yep, we’ve opened entries for the 2012 Microsoft Australia Partner Awards, and yet again there’s an entry category for ‘Australian Education Partner of the Year’.
Without a shadow of a doubt, winning any of the awards is a great way to raise your profile across the education marketplace, and you get a bonus of a snazzy logo to use in your marketing. But even just entering the awards raises your profile, as it means that your entries will be seen by key judges in the Microsoft Australia Education business. Last year the judges learned about some new projects that they were able to discuss with customers, and create some new business opportunities for our partners. We also ran a series of webinars with some of the entrants, to help to spread their stories out to other customers.
The deadline for entries is 11th June*, and the winner will be announced at the Australia Partner Conference in Brisbane on the 4th September 2012.
There are 24 categories that you can enter (although, obviously, your first priority should be Education Partner of the Year).
You can find out the categories, read the FAQ and submit your entry via the Microsoft Partner Network
* The 11th June is important, because it’s the day after two important birthdays - mine and the Duke of Edinburgh, the world’s longest-serving consort (him, not me)
