Elastic Contributor Program

Awards and recognition

To show up on the leaderboard, submit contributions and earn points. Top point earners by region will win great prizes.

Leaderboard

We will award the 30 top contributors in each of these three regions:

  • Europe, Middle East, & Africa
  • East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, & Oceania
  • North America & South America

Contributors on the leaderboard will be grouped into three different awards tiers: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. For more information about the awards tiers refer to the terms and conditions.

The current submission period allows for contributions made between February 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022. Scores will be reset annually at the start of each new submission period.

To view the most up-to-date leaderboard, log into the Elastic Contributor Portal and click on "Leaderboard" to see the ranking of the top contributors in your region.
