Create An Award Winning Entry


What we're looking for

Enter as many award categories as you wish, using a different customer solution story for each submission. Each submission should comprise a 60-second video uploaded to YouTube and an executive summary (4,000 characters max). Before submitting your entry, you must identify the customer and confirm that they are willing to participate in your case study.

Executive Summary guidelines

Business Challenge

Choose one solution. Describe the specific customer scenario(s) and problem(s) solved by the solution. Include your customer's business challenge or problem and provide examples of the before-and-after-solution implementation scenarios.

Benefits & Impact

Please describe the benefits and business impact of your solution. Specify the products (include version) and technologies used.

Transformation & Differentiation

How has basing your solution on Microsoft's technologies helped position your organisation for growth or transformation to adapt to the cloud? How has it helped you win against the competition in a customer situation from a technical and business perspective?

Market Need

Is this solution specific to one customer, or does it have broader market potential?


Video Submission guidelines

Keep it short and simple. We're not looking for flashy production values, just content. Describe the customer challenge, your technology solution, and why you believe it is 'excellent' - innovation, efficiency, ROI, sustainability, etc.
