Who is Participating?

You need to demonstrate skill in a particular area over a long period of time (3 - 5 years), demonstrate the ability to help people, and demonstrate the ability to communicate well.  Then in here, as you form relationships with people, you may be able to get an MVP to nominate you.

My MVP is in Windows and Devices for IT.  I generally can help people here with Windows problems and have certificates here in Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Another member here and I know each other well and he nominated me in 2016 and I have been an MVP since.

I am off to the Microsoft MVP Global Summit in March 2018.

MVP - Microsoft Most Valuable Professional. Microsoft gives this to professionals working on Microsoft technologies who works in the industry and helps the community as well via blogging/msdn forums and via technical trainings.

No, but you need to get nominated (I just nominated a member here) and then you need to fill out the requirements spreadsheet when you receive it. It will take a few months for Microsoft to review your submission and make a decision.
