Introduction

The TechNet Guru Contribution is a monthly competition that provides a chance to all members of the community to contribute great articles in the categories of their choice. Each month people who post an article to TechNet Wiki can propose their article for consideration in that month's awards. The top three articles each month win a "virtual" gold, silver or bronze award. This article lists all people winning medals in that competition year 2016.

Note: This article is listed all top three articles winner but we really appreciate other participant and their articles who not reached to top 3. This was a very good year and we found some new Gurus in all category. Wish you all the best for year 2017.
