The Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year Award is back, and it's time for Red Hat Certified Professionals (RHCPs) to submit their stories.

Red Hat will again be honoring the hard work, expertise, and ingenuity of some of the world’s premier IT professionals through its annual contest. The 2013 version of this contest will be open to all Red Hat Certification credentials (RHCSA, RHCE, RHCVA, RHCSS, RHCDS, RHCA, JBCAA, JBCD, and Red Hat Certificates of Expertise).

To be considered for the 2013 RHCP of the Year contest, you must be a current Red Hat Certified Professional and complete the online form. You will be asked to provide a 500-words-or-fewer summary that details how you innovatively and creatively used your Red Hat Certified skills to enhance your IT environment, increase system performance, tightened system security, and/or otherwise deliver results for your organization. Red Hat will accept submissions now through March 8, 2013.

All of the submissions will be judged by a panel of Red Hat judges. The top-ranked submission will be recognized as the RHCP of the Year 2013 and have their submissions posted to this page.

The winner will receive a free trip to the 2013 Red Hat Summit and JBoss World conference, including flight, conference pass, and hotel accomodation. The winner will also be recognized during the Innovation Hour at Summit.
