"We're seeing rising rates of registration as word of the program gets out," said Miller. "This program is a great way to recognize IT expertise and reward the top members of the certified professional community. The contest creates a fun and exciting challenge for participants to compare themselves to their peers in the IT industry all over the world."

There are six rounds of the contest, consisting of 30 days per round. Microsoft Certified Professionals nominate themselves or a peer for the monthly "MCP Hall of Fame" contest. In the first round, more than 143 nominations were collected. The top five entries are picked by a judging staff that includes two staff members from Windows IT Pro and two staff members from Microsoft.

The top five entries are then posted to a Web site: http://www.windowsitpro.com/mcphalloffame. Visitors to the site are invited to vote for their favorite candidate. In the first round, more than 900 votes were tallied and Dejan Foro of Croatia was voted the top Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP). The winner of each round gets his/her photo posted on the Web site; a VIP subscription to all Windows IT Pro products; and all six winners will be profiled in the September issue of Windows IT Pro. Out of those six, one grand prize winner will be awarded an expense-paid trip to Redmond for a VIP visit with Microsoft executives.
