Award Winners

There are four award categories for our partners:

Global Champion

A flagship accolade awarded to partners who deliver Creator-based solutions across the globe, and have earned the highest points.

Innovator of the Year

Awarded to partners who developed the most innovative solution built with Zoho Creator. Judged by a jury made up of Zoho's management.

Regional Champion

Accolade awarded to partners who earned the highest points in their region.

Emerging Player

Special accolade for Zoho Creator-focused partners who have shown commendable growth and effort in 2021.


Who is eligible to be part of the Partner Awards?

All Zoho Creator partners are eligible. The minimum entry criteria for Global/Regional Champions is $10,000 in licensing revenue contribution for Creator.

What is the timeframe for the awards?

The contest is based on partner contributions from January 1st, 2021, to December 31st, 2021. The final day for consideration for marketing activities is December 31st, 2021.

Which Certified Developers are eligible?

All certifications until the end of December 2021 will be considered. The developers have to map themselves as partner developers in the Creator Partnerships application. Freelancers will not be considered as partner developers.

What are the different regions considered?

The regions are classified as ANZ, APAC, India, MEA, UK, EU, Latam, Canada, and the USA.

Can the same partner be awarded multiple awards?

Only one of the three titles—Global Champion, Regional Champion, or Emerging Player—can be awarded to each partner. The Innovator of the Year is an exception, as it can be won by a partner who has won any of our other three awards.

How are partners judged?

Global and Regional Champion: Zoho has created a point-based criteria for the awards. The partner is judged on revenue generated, marketing initiatives taken, and the number of Certified Developers the partner trained in 2021.

Innovator of the Year: We've formed a jury made up of Zoho’s management. The jury scrutinizes each partner's submission and awards a score. The top three partners win the award.

Emerging Player: The partner account managers judge partners based on the partner's effort in pushing forward Zoho Creator in the year 2021. The top 8 partners win the award.

How will I be notified if I've won?

Your Zoho partner account manager will notify you of your win. We will then announce the results publicly through our online channels.
