We are excited to announce the first cohort of the Splunk MVP program. Splunk MVPs are passionate members of the Splunk community that have shown consistent participation in at least one area of our community programs. The Splunk MVP program is one way the community team recognizes our star contributors, and it complements the SplunkTrust program, which has been in place for many years. The Splunk community is built upon the efforts of its members and the contributions they make to help their peers find success. We are always thankful for your contributions!
Starting with this cohort, Splunk will recognize community members twice a year based upon community program participation. This first cohort was selected based upon participation in the Splunk Answers forums and our top Splunk User Group leaders, and we are adding additional sources for Splunk MVP recognition from our other community programs in upcoming selection rounds.
How do I become a Splunk MVP?
Chances are, you’re already well on your way! Splunk MVP selection will focus on community contributions, prioritizing engagement and support, in whatever areas you might be most passionate about. Do you love answering questions about Splunk SOAR in Splunk Answers? That’s one way! Driving fabulous engagement as a leader of your Splunk User Group? That’s another way! Rockin’ out the Slack contributions? Yep, that could definitely score you an invite! Are you contributing some amazing technical content to our community blogs? Yep, even that. The beauty of this tier is that it can help recognize stand-out contributions in even a single area. Twice each year, we’ll review your contributions alongside specific selection criteria (sorry, the specifics are secret to help avert gaming the system!), and we’ll send special invitations to community members that qualify.
