Community Contributor of the Month

:medal_sports: Starting June we launched a Community Newsletter with the objective of staying close to you, our dear UiPath Community members, and bringing more awareness about UiPath Community programs, platforms and initiatives in general.

Every month, at the end of the newsletter, we mention a community member who has contributed in extraordinary ways to scale automation adoption among their peers through their knowledge and collaboration.

What is it about?

Starting from the beginning of June, we select one user who will receive the monthly mention for their contributions to our UiPath Community.

Every mentioned community member is chosen by the UiPath Community team using a set of criteria that you can see below:

  • contributed to building a local community and organized at least one successful meetup (big crowd, many questions, product feedback etc)

  • was present as a trainer, speaker of facilitator at an RPA/automation themed event

  • published at least 2 blog posts in the last 3 months (on the Community blog or in any other public space where there is an audience)

  • **published at least 2 tutorials on YouTube, for example, in the last 3 months

  • published at least [5 use-cases](Use Cases Repository - UiPath Community Forum) in the last 3 months

  • added any other extraordinary, undefined contribution to the Community

*every contribution is mandatory to be focused on high-quality content

At the end of each month, the UiPath Community Team reviews who the most active contributors were and rewards the one who stands out most. This process has a small dose of subjectivity in it, so please be mindful of this. :blush:

The rewards:

  • mention in the UiPath Community Newsletter, in the section Community Member of the month
  • a beautiful Forum badge that will appear in their profiles

*When mentioning the Community member of the month, we attach in the newsletter a photo (optional), the name and the LinkedIn profile of the awarded person. We check before if they agree and we kindly ask them to please check the privacy policy - the data will be managed accordingly, and they will need to confirm that they agree to us publishing their name, LinkedIn profile and picture in the newsletter.

Let us know what you think in the comments below :smiley:
