The Champion program lasts for one year. The next cohort of Champions will start in November 2021. To be considered for the November start, your deadline for application is October 20th.

The Camunda Champion Program team selects the top contributors and welcomes them into the program. If you get accepted, you will be notified via email.

Champions receive the title for one year, during which they can enjoy the benefits that are associated with the program. Existing Champions are eligible to renew their status for the following year, as long as they can demonstrate that they have made significant contributions to the community over the past 12 months. Being named Camunda Champion one year does not automatically guarantee that someone will remain in the program the following years. We reserve the right to remove a Champion before the 12-month term ends, e.g. when a person violates our Code of Conduct.

Once you fill out the application form, you’ll receive an email with further information regarding next steps. If you got accepted for the program, you will be notified via email.

If you have any questions around the program, feel free to reach out to us via champions@camunda.com.
