The 2018 Testing Heroes Awards

Recently I was contacted by the guys at Tricentis – a company specialising in software testing tools for Continuous Integration. They were excited to tell me about a new initiative they were launching for the testing community. The 2018 Testing Heroes Awards. Having had a look through the site and got a feel for what this was about, I felt like it was something I wanted to be involved in.

What is the 2018 Testing Heroes Awards About?

The 2018 Testing Heroes Awards consist of 6 different categories as follows:
  • Tester of the Year
  • Test Manager of the Year
  • The Explorer
  • The Performer
  • The Automator
  • The Risk-o-Meter
You can probably tell from the name of each award what the category represents. But the 2018 Testing Heroes Awards site has a detailed description of the type of tester you are nominating in each category.

How can I Nominate Someone?

To nominate someone for an award, the process is simple. Browse to the 2018 Testing Heroes Awards site. Click any one of the categories. Fill in the short form with the details of your nomination. Job done.
You can nominate in a single category only. Or all 6 categories if you wish!

Anything Else I Should Know?

It’s great to see initiatives like this being offered to the testing community by companies like Tricentis. I have been assured by Tricentis that this is not a lead-gen campaign. Or a pay for award program. It is simply a way to bring the testing community closer together. Whilst giving deserving nominees some recognition for their great work and contributions.
 
As an added incentive, some of the winning nominations will win a trip to the Tricentis Accelerate Event in Vienna, Austria on October 9 – 10, with expenses paid!
 
Check out the 2018 Testing Heroes Awards website today, get nominating, and be sure to spread the word on Twitter with the hashtag #TestingHeroes2018
Disclaimer: In the interests of full transparency, Tricentis are paying me a modest one-off fee for hosting a banner advertisement on my homepage. They are not paying me to write this blog post, for any traffic I generate for their site, or for anyone that nominates in the 2018 Testing Heroes Awards after reading this post. I simply thought it was a cool initiative, and felt compelled to write this post 🙂
