Become Part of the Elite Program

The BlackBerry® Elite Program for Developers aims to identify, recognize and reward key external developer influencers; who then in turn amplify the BlackBerry message and serve as an advocate within their own networks.

Potential BlackBerry Elite candidates are nominated by fellow developers in their communities, by current Elite members or by RIM® employees who identify the candidate's capability and willingness to participate in this program.

Once a nomination has been received it will undergo a review process by RIM. We will evaluate each nomination and take the following into consideration: technology platform, region, and contributions to both the developer community and BlackBerry World. We also strongly consider and weigh the quality and quantity of the nominee's contributions to the developer community. All BlackBerry Elite members meet a specific set of criteria in order to receive this designation; they must be nominated each year in order to be considered for the program the following year.
