Becoming an MVP
You can become a most valued professional (MVP) by sharing your passion, knowledge and know-how with exceptional contributions to the SDL Tridion community, be it through
SDL Tridion social network sites
, by posting
or through your personal weblogs. Your contributions will be seen by all members of the community and by the MVP Selection panel. The award winner will receive an award and certificate from the CEO of SDL Tridion, can use the SDL Tridion MVP'-logo in professional communication and will have free entrance to SDL Tridion hosted events.

Successful candidates will be contacted by a member of the MVP Selection Panel.
Selecting an MVP
To receive the MVP award, nominees go through a review process by the MVP Selection panel. This panel will evaluate each nominee's voluntary contribution to the community over the past 12 months, the quality of their feedback and knowledge, and level of impact. Active MVPs will be re-evaluated every year, and the MVP title is only valid for one year each time. Active MVPs do not have to re-nominate, but are asked to continue their sharing activities.
MVP Selection Panel
This panel includes members of SDL Tridion Professional Services and Product Management, as well as members of the community in all purposes independent from SDL Tridion. This panel's independence is crucial, as many MVP nominees do work directly or indirectly for SDL WCM Solutions division, and we would be excluding many valuable professionals from possible selection if the Panel was constituted by SDL employees alone.
The members of the MVP Selection Panel are:
- Alvin Reyes, SDL Professional Services
- Bart Koopman, SDL Product Management
- Quirijn Slings, Co-Founder, Trivident
- Dominic Cronin, Principal Consultant, Indivirtual
- Albert Romkes, Certified SDL Tridion Consultant, Brunel ICT
Nuno Linhares will continue serving as non-voting executive chairman of the panel.
