    The Top Seller and the Global Partner of the Year awards seek to honour partner achievements along with recognising and showing appreciation of how the partner has worked in alignment with Totara to change how learning technologies are developed, delivered and purchased.

    All active Totara Partners will automatically qualify, no submission is required.

    Rather than judging done solely by our staff, a judging panel is involved, bringing a real-world eye to entries. The Totara Awards are not a money-making affair for us, it’s free to enter. Winners are honoured during the Totara Partner Meetups and Totara User Conference receptions.

    It’s really easy to enter. Just choose your categories, complete the Totara case study template and submit to the marketing team.
