Top Contributor Award

New in 2014 is an award that recognizes the member who earned the most points overall in all categories for solutions, articles and video content. As we continue to build our global peer network, these three types of resources are essential to our community’s professional needs.

Congratulations to the winner of the inaugural Top Contributor Award: Andrew Hancock.

How is the Top Contributor Award Different from the Expert of the Year?

The Expert Awards are based on solution points only, and we were unable to easily update the calculations for 2014 without negatively affecting the front-runners from previous quarters. Instead of disrupting the system, we felt it was important to recognize the winners based on the quarterly results and the top overall contributor.

Experts Exchange is powered by our members, and we are making changes to better reflect that. This change, and others, will be a part of our 2015 awards program updates coming soon, these updates will be announced in coming months – stay tuned.
