Hot off the presses:

Munich, Germany. — June 28, 2010 — Microsoft Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) today announced the finalists of its regional 2010 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards. The annual awards honor Microsoft Registered, Certified and Gold Certified partners for delivering exemplary solutions for their customers during the past year. Award finalists were chosen from nominations from around the world. - [source]

Telerik competed with nearly 300 other entries and won the SV/Software Solutions Partner of the Year award for Sitefinity CMS.  There will be an award ceremony at the upcoming Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2010 (July 11-15) in Washington D.C. 

We’re, of course, delighted to receive this award.   It underscores our commitment to providing outstanding innovation and value to our customers.  This is also a nice breath of fresh air as we work to release the next evolution of Sitefinity (Sitefinity 4.0).  Thanks, as always, for everyone’s support.

    There is no mention of Telerik or Sitefinity in Microsoft press materials. Here and here
    Am I missing something?

    Hi Ilya,

    Unfortunately you're not missing anything.  The Microsoft press releases are short on details.  We struggled with this while writing our own press releases.

    The details we have are from private communications from Microsoft.  Here is a quote from the announcement they sent us:

    Congratulations *TELERIK*! Your company has been selected as a winner of the Microsoft Central and Eastern Europe Partner of the Year Awards for 2010.

    It is our great pleasure to inform you that of nearly 500 Partner entries submitted this year from our region for the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2010 Awards program, your company's entry, *“Telerik Sitefinity Content Management System (CMS)”, *was selected by Microsoft judges as the regional Winner in the category *ISV/SoftwareSolutions.*

    I, along with others at Telerik, were involved with the application process (we submitted Sitefinity).

    All this being said, I understand it would be helpful to confirm this with Microsoft.  We're working to get more details published publicly.  Sorry if this looks fishy.  I definitely have no intention of misleading anyone.

    Sorry for the delay in providing the link - the page wasn't live with that information at the time Gabe posted the blog post.
