Some time back, Microsoft announced the launch of its Windows Insider MVP Program. There was a significant restructuring for the Microsoft MVP Program announced earlier, where it was stated that the existing Microsoft MVP Program would be focused on Developers and IT Professionals. It was also stated that Consumer MVP award categories would be directly supported by the respective product teams.
Microsoft Windows Insider MVP Program
Dona Sarkar, Global Head of Windows Insider Program, has announced the news in a blog post. The Windows Insider MVP Program will be the new home for MVPs focused on Windows and Devices for consumers. Here is what she had to say about it:
Our Windows and Devices consumer MVPs are super important to us and we have been working these past several months to figure out the right home for them. It was a thoughtful decision to bring these MVPs into the Windows Insider Program, where the future of Windows is being shaped directly by the people who use Windows most. The Windows Insider MVP Program allows us to work more closely with MVPs via more focused, direct interactions with various Windows and Devices product teams.
This Award category was initiated in early 2017. Insiders who are directly contributing to the development of Windows Platform had to wait until then to enroll themselves for Windows Insider MVP Program.
How to become a Windows Insider MVP
To be considered for the Windows Insider MVP award, a nomination must be submitted on your behalf by a Microsoft Employee or an existing MVP. After this referral nomination, you will receive a link to complete our program application, where you can explain why you want to be an MVP.
