I'm curious when the Sitecore MVPs will be announced and for those of you that are currently MVP's, how were you notified in the past?
Does Sitecore reach out to you directly?
If you look at the official MVP website you can see the question about the timeline there:
What is the timeline of the selection process?
The nomination is open during November for the exact dates please follow https://twitter.com/SitecoreMVP. We will review all the nominations and recommendations during December and we will finalize the award winners early January. The announcement of the Sitecore MVP Awards will be by the end of January.
The press release is scheduled for the 31st January and every nominee will get an email couple of days before the announcement even if not awarded.
On the last year MVPs were announced at beginning of February. Last years was an official press release on Sitecore website but all MVP received an email few days before official press release.
