The annual Microsoft Partner Program Awards recognize partners that have delivered exemplary solutions during the last twelve months. The program is a unique opportunity for Microsoft Partners to showcase their solutions and to earn global recognition. In 2005, 135 finalists and 65 winners were selected from over 2,000 entries.

Award winners and finalists benefit from increased press coverage and market recognition within the global Microsoft partner community. They may also experience closer relationships with Microsoft Business Groups to drive new business opportunities that extend beyond Worldwide Partner Conference.

In recognition of the unique challenges in the Winning Customer Award category, the global Winning Customer Award winners will receive a special USD$10,000 cash prize, a Microsoft-funded case study, and an enhanced, customized press release, in addition to the recognition and incentives provided by the Microsoft Partner Program Awards.
