Who can submit an Oracle ACE nomination?
Anyone can submit a nomination for an Oracle ACE Associate and Oracle ACE Pro candidate. Yes, that means that you can also nominate yourself for these levels!
Nominations for ACE Directors need to be submitted by either current ACE members in good standing who do not have the same employer as the nominee, or Oracle employees. All ACE Director nominations need to include at least one reference from an Oracle product manager.
The ACE Program team will review a submitted nomination to evaluate the candidate's public contributions, level of expertise, and length of time they’ve been sharing their knowledge in the community. Oracle reserves the right to decide if a nomination is accepted or rejected.
We recommend that you fill out the application using as many knowledge-sharing examples as possible for the previous 12 to 18 months. For each community contribution, include a link so we can learn more about the candidate.
Who reviews the nominations?
Oracle ACE nominations are reviewed by the Oracle ACE Program team and relevant product managers, based on the candidate's area of expertise.
How do I know that my nomination has been received by Oracle?
We email the nominator as soon as the nomination is submitted and again when the review has been completed.
How long does it take for my nomination to be reviewed?
Because we receive a large number of nominations, the review process typically takes between 30 to 90 days.
How will I know if the nominee will receive the award?
We email all accepted nominees and their nominators with the award invitation details. We will email only the nominator if a nomination is declined.
What happens if my nomination is declined by Oracle?
The Oracle ACE Program team will email the nominator with suggestions on how the nominee can become a stronger candidate for the program. You can submit a new nomination nine months after a decline decision.
For questions about the Oracle ACE Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, all nominators will receive a nomination submission confirmation email, so you do not need to contact us to inquire whether we received the nomination.
