Microsoft Advertising has heralded the commencement of the nomination period for its prestigious 8th annual Partner Awards. These awards are a tradition of celebrating the exemplary efforts and innovative approaches of companies and teams within the Elite and Select Partner tiers. The central theme for this year’s accolades is ‘transformation’, which reflects on the remarkable journeys of change and the enduring impact made by these trailblazers in both, their client’s success and the broader industry evolution.

What are the Microsoft Advertising Partner Awards?

The awards have always been a cornerstone in acknowledging the outstanding endeavors of Microsoft’s advertising partners who have gone above and beyond in unearthing hidden opportunities, crafting innovative strategies, and providing fresh perspectives. These efforts have not only driven transformative changes for their clients but have also significantly contributed to propelling the industry forward.

Adding a fresh dimension to the 2023 awards, Microsoft Advertising introduced a new category titled “Performance Partner of the Year.” This new accolade aims to recognize a team that has showcased exceptional prowess in driving performance and business growth through adept optimization strategies. This includes leveraging increased feature adoption for campaigns across the Microsoft Advertising Network, which is integral in optimizing the performance metrics and achieving remarkable business growth.
