Spring 2014 DNN★MVP's

It is time once again to recognize our DNN★MVP's; those exceptional DNN community contributors whose participation and enthusiasm help make our ecosystem such a passionate and collaborative environment.


 The DNN★MVP award is an annual designation and this weekend at the DNN-Connect event in Lake Garda, Italy we announced the latest group of award recipients. In no particular order:

Star Michael Tobisch Austria, DNN MVP 2013
Star Roger Selwyn United Kingdom, DNN MVP 2013
Star David Lee France, DNN MVP 2013
Star Gifford Watkins Canada, DNN MVP 2013
Star Wes Tatters Australia, *New DNN MVP*
Star Sacha Trauwaen Belgium, *New DNN MVP*
Star Will Strohl United States, *New DNN MVP*
Star Jay Mathis United States, *New DNN MVP*
Star Geoff Barlow Netherlands, *New DNN MVP*
Star Julien Girerd France, *New DNN MVP*



(David Lee, Sacha Trauwaen, Shaun Walker, Michael Tobisch, Julien Girerd, Will Strohl )

The DNN★MVP award is performance-based and recognizes exceptional contribution during the previous 12 months; primarily focussing on activities performed in the various community channels represented on, but also including valued community activities occurring elsewhere. As part of the process for choosing award finalists, a committee of current DNN★MVP's and active DNN Corp employees consider the various types of contribution for each individual, especially their level of support in the Forums, Exchange, Voice, as well as their contributions of valuable open source extensions through the Forge.

DNN★MVP's who were eligible for renewal and have now joined our list of distinguished Alumni are Scott McCulloch, Gilles Le Pigocher, Rob Brynn, Chris Hammond, William Severance, Jason Brunken, and Allan Foster.

Do you want to be a DNN★MVP? DNN★MVP's enjoy a number of benefits including promotion & recognition; monthly insider meetings & and access to privileged resources. MVP’s are selected twice per year, with the next opportunity coming up in Q4 2014... so get active and contribute and you may be recognized as one of the elite members of the DNN community!

What we choose to do to help others we do because we want to - but it is - I must say an honor to be recognized among such a group of outstanding and wonderfully talented people. Thank you, and congratulations to the other MVP awardies.
