    Hey everyone,

    In our OEFs and through direct interactions with some of you, we've received a lot of feedback on how important it is to highlight those that are the cornerstones of the community – users that day in day out selflessly help others. We couldn't agree more! In last year's Community Awards, we recognized some of these users – people that, through the knowledge gathered by using their OnePlus devices, answer other users' questions and create content that ultimately makes the Community a better place.

    But, with the OnePlus 9 Series, we're trying something new! We're inviting you – our helpful users – to apply to become a OnePlus 9 Series Expert. We will choose three users based on their past contributions to the community – no luck involved– and provide them a brand-new OnePlus 9 Series device. Armed with our newest flagship and with direct contact with staff, the OnePlus 9 Series Experts will help more users by answering questions and creating helpful content.

    Keep reading to know more!

    What are OnePlus 9 Series Experts?
    Like our Starting Point Experts, our Photography Experts, and our OnePlus TV Expert, the OnePlus 9 Series Experts will be three carefully-selected users that have a track record in helping others.

    They will be expected to help others by answering other users' doubts and preparing small tutorials, guides, or other pieces of helpful content.

    Finally, these users will also be in close contact with staff members, moderators, and other experts, helping to bridge the gap between other users and staff members.

    Why should you apply?
    You should apply if you like helping others and want to help make the Community a better place for everyone. Getting a OnePlus 9 Series phone is also a nice perk.

    When can you apply?
    You can apply now and until March 22, 11:59 PM EDT. We will contact the three chosen users by March 26 and announce them shortly after.

    Who can apply?

    Any community member can apply, but you have higher chances of being selected if you have a track record of helping others in the Community. We're looking for users that know their stuff but also like helping and are friendly to others. Please note that you'll have to sign an NDA, as you may have access to information before it is made public. Terms and Conditions apply.

    How can you apply?
    The process is quite simple, all you have to is tap the Apply Now link below and fill the application form.

    This is a nice step. In addition to rewarding those who have been helpful to the community since a long time, it will also be a great help to have few members who can manage the new series related questions in a dedicated and focused manner.

    Oh yes finally, I don't have so much free time like I used to, so I feel like I'm not a good fit anymore but I hope that someone with the passion about techonolgy and helping others can get access to this device and enjoy this wonderful opportunity.
