I am very happy to report that today I received the following email from Microsoft:

Dear Toni Frankola,

Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2010 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in SharePoint Services technical communities during the past year.

Q: So what’s this MVP award Toni?

Well according to Microsoft MVP web site:

We seek to recognize the best and brightest from technology communities around the world with the Microsoft® Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award.

So anybody who loves particular Microsoft technology and actively participates in communities is a potential candidate for an MVP award.

Q: Toni what’s your contribution to the SharePoint community?

In my case there are few things I did in last 12 months to get it: organizing and running Croatian SharePoint User Group, speaking about SharePoint at various community and other conferences, organizing SharePoint events, running a blog, actively participating in online forums and discussion boards, contributing to some open source projects etc.

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank some people that helped and inspired me for this one,  so here we go (in random order):

The past year has been very interesting for me and I plan to be even more active in the next period. Stay tuned!

SharePoint FTW!
