Nominations are open for the Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards.

We’re excited to announce that nominations are now open for the Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards. We look forward to celebrating our Elite and Select partners for their amazing achievements from the past year. This year’s Partner Awards will be delivered as a virtual event in February 2022, with all the fanfare and celebration our partners have come to expect. For those in our Partner tier, the Microsoft Advertising Partner Celebration is for you.

The Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards will continue to acknowledge and celebrate our Elite and Select partners for the incredible work they’ve done in 2021 across several categories in the Americas, EMEA and APAC. To reflect the outstanding impact we’ve had together this past year, our theme for the awards is Together we are limitless.

New this year, we’re pleased to introduce the Social Impact Awards. This award sub-category will feature partners’ inspiring solutions and celebrate changemakers who drive purpose and action. The Community Response Award winner and the Marketing with Purpose Award winner in each region will compete for our new Global Social Impact of the Year Award which will be announced at Elevate, our annual Global Partner Summit, in April 2022. For more information, see the detailed category descriptions for all the awards.
