VMware launched in 18th of December the first of two-year applications for vExpert 2018.
The applications will be open until January 19th at midnight PDT. The vExpert 2018 announcement will be on February 16th, 2018.
The official page for vExpert announcements: http://blogs.vmware.com/vmtn
This year there is a new site and new tool for applications, so you need to enter vexpert.vmware.com and apply for the first time (then you need to create an account), or if you are already a vExpert, you need to reset your old password and then reapply to vExpert 2018.
Good luck with all new applications, and for the vExpert renewals.
