2021 was an exciting year on MSSQLTips.com with the team demonstrating perseverance and growth. A total of 82 professionals contributed to making 2021 a success and we are very proud of each and every accomplishment by all of the MSSQLTips.com Authors. We are excited to announce the eighth annual MSSQLTips.com Author and Rookie of the Year. In 2020, we made a few changes including splitting the Author of the Year into four categories - DBA, Developer, Business Intelligence and Cloud Professionals. We also included new ways for Authors to garner votes with additional community promotions, impactful ideas and more. Authors that had at least 10 published tips qualified for the Author of the Year and new authors in 2021 that had at least 5 published tips qualified for the Rookie of the Year.

Please congratulate the contenders and winners in the form below! All of these authors deserve significant recognition for all of their contributions and we encourage all of the authors to take it to the next level to provide the community with even more beneficial content in 2022!

Thank you for leading the class of 2021. You both have humbly been recognized in 2021 for some amazing contributions worthy of this recognition. Enjoy! But get geared up for 2022! There is a whole new level that we need you to step up to - with the Veterans. Get ready and GO!
