Audio contest: Create an ident for the Envato Trends video series (new closing date: July 7)

Design an audio ident for our Envato Trends video series, and win some great prizes!

We want your help to create an audio ident that will be used to introduce the Envato Creative Trends video series on our YouTube channel. We have a new animated logo ready to go, and we need your musical talents to bring it to life.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for an audio ident to accompany the Envato Trends animated logo, featured below. You can see examples of past Trends videos here and here, for some inspiration on the tempo and vibe of the videos published on our channel.

How to Enter

  1. Create an audio ident to accompany the Envato Trends animated logo above. You can be as creative as you like, but your track must go for exactly 6 seconds to fit the logo shown above.

  2. Send us your best work! There’s a strict limit of one contest entry per Author.

  3. When it’s ready, upload your track to AudioJungle by Monday, June 15th. Make sure you include the following text in your item Notes section, so our reviewers can find your entry:

Note: This track is being entered in the 2020 Envato Trends audio ident contest

  1. Once your track has been approved by our review team, post a link to the AudioJungle Item page in this forum thread before Tuesday, June 30th.

Please read our full Terms and Conditions carefully (see below).

The current Audio Jungle review queue will not permit anyone who wishes to enter this competition to meet the deadline stated in the post.
If you can create and upload a submission in the next couple of days then you should be safe.

Hey! My logo is already there!!!

Hi all. Feedback noted!

We’re not expecting this to affect entries, but I can extend the date for forum entries if it looks like there are still submissions caught in the Logos and Idents review queue on June 15 - I’ll keep in contact with the review team to see how this goes over the next fortnight.

Entering early is always the safest option - however, if your entry still hasn’t been reviewed close to the deadline, please let me know.

Great contest! It’s a really nice way to involve the community in Envato’s communication.
Love that you thought of including the buying of a license, this makes it all the more professional and respectful.

Good luck though, because you will get a ton of submissions for this one :wink:

This was fun to do and so I’ve given it my best try but…

I have mine ready to go unfortunately as I already have 5 tracks in the 19 day (sob!) queue, mine will be delayed, due to item upload number restrictions is that okay @BenLeong ?

I’m going to delete a track in my queue to solve this!
